Mount Barker Train Mural - is a half size stream train with 2 carriages and a guards van. This mural was a Mount Barker Rotary project to celebrate the connection and importance of the steam trains to early Mount Barker and it sits on a stone wall next to the old “Guvvy “ dam where the trains would fill up with water so long ago. The colourful windows of the carriages are all small paintings done by the children from the schools of the town. The realistic mural replica measures 33m long and is an entry statement, situated opposite the BP service Station as one drives into Mount Barker from the northern entry.
