The Burdekin Shire offers a variety of cultural experiences.
Eighth Avenue, Home Hill.
A large mural depicts elements of rural life in the Burdekin, including cane farms, mango orchards and farmhouses. The mural was painted by Ayr artist Margaret Redweik. Canecutter mural
A tribute to the men who made their living in the canefields. Before the introduction of mechanical cane harvesters in the 1960s, farmers relied upon gangs of canecutters to get their cane to the mill. Hand canecutting was tough work requiring stamina and great skill with a caneknife. This mural was painted by Ayr artist Margaret Redweik.
