Diggers’ Walk

The beautiful gum trees lining Belalie Creek through Jamestown’s town centre were planted by returned soldiers following World War 1 as part of a project known as the Diggers’ Walk.

Jamestown community members are now working hard to recreate the Diggers’ Walk, with letters, diaries, photographs and stories to be featured on signage, complemented by audio posts.

Murals

Murals on the walls of Jamestown’s beautiful heritage shops tell the stories of pioneers and early settlers, creating a visual history of the development of the town from 19th century optimism to the diverse agribusiness centre it is today.

These heritage artworks are now complemented by an outdoor gallery showcasing murals painted for the annual Jamestown Mural Festival. The current festival murals are at the eastern end of Ayr St, and other murals from previous festivals are dotted around the township.
