Yerrinbool Railway Garden

12 March, 2024.

The Yerrinbool Railway Garden is a community initiative, providing a place for locals to come together. Recently I attended the unveiling of its newest art installation: mosaics designed and installed by local artists Jan Heslop and Gale Heslop Reade. Created over five months, the mosaic project was initiated when a local resident donated four large plain‑grey concrete pillars. Seizing this as an opportunity to turn a waste product into something beautiful, the group contacted Wollondilly mosaic artist Narelle Noppert to run a mosaic workshop. The mosaics are complemented by a mural on a nearby bus shelter by local artist Joe Quilter, allowing passers‑by to engage with the art and celebrate the creative talents within the community. It is inspiring to see community members working together to create public art. The Yerrinbool Village Group Inc. have given their own time and resources and utilised recycled materials to create something for everyone to enjoy. I encourage any group who is looking for a way to give back and invigorate its public spaces to come forward with its ideas—and to visit Yerrinbool station.
