Gateway Island cultural trail


The walking trail in the Gateway Island cultural precinct consist of a 5km loop and will complement the Eddie Kneebone walk at Gateway Village and the refurbished Burraja Cultural Centre.

The trail will feature works by four local Aboriginal artists whom have met with traditional owners to share stories and points of interest in the development of the artworks.

The four artists – Treahna Hamm, Patricia Cerminara, Mick Bogie and Tamara Murray – are now creating concept plans for their works.

The project is funded by the Australian Government through the Albury-Wodonga Regional Deal, Victorian Government through the Regional Infrastructure Fund and Wodonga Council.

Works on the trail including the installation of the art works are due to be completed by June 2021.
