Some of our services are closed or have different hours on the public holiday before the AFL Grand Final – Fri 29 Sept 2023

We are leading a project to support the Hartwell Association of Residents and Traders, Hartwell traders and the local community by funding the installation of a community mural to add colour and life to Hartwell Shopping Precinct.

Later this year, we will be installing a creative mural on Council land, along the length of the vacant property located at 1134 Toorak Road, Camberwell. The mural is expected to be installed mid to late 2023.

We engaged a local artist to lead a series of creative community workshops with 4 local schools to develop the mural design, based on the theme ‘Heart of Melbourne’.

Thank you to all the students involved from:

  • Camberwell South Primary School
  • Glen Iris Primary School
  • Hartwell Primary School and 
  • St Dominic's Primary School. 

The workshops are now complete, and we look forward to installing the mural in the coming months for everyone to enjoy visiting.

The mural aims to add colour and life, increase visitation and encourage the community to shop locally, following the impacts COVID-19 has had on local businesses in the area.
