Monday Mural – Sheffield, Tasmania

Some wonderful murals from the Town of Sheffield, Tasmania. The mural capital of Australia.

Any Vacancies – Julian Bale
Spirited Horses – John Landis

 In 1919 a severe electrical storm struck while men were working on the Cradle Mountain road. A bolt of lightning hit a nearby tree causing the horses to take fright and throw their riders, breaking the back of Ross Connell who died six weeks later in hospital.

The mural shows the mountains in the park, as well as the often extreme weather conditions. Source: Sheffield Visitor Information.
