St Arnaud

Our creative community welcomes natural explorers and go-getters who, like us, are driven to transform the old into the new. From painting our streets and silos with murals telling the stories of our people, to birthing the Landcare movement that challenged Australia to care for our environment – we’re always evolving and building new experiences. We share our passions and nurture the passions of others, invigorating and sparking inspiration in those who visit our town.
