On Saturday 4th October 2020 the Mayor of Federation Council – Mr Pat Bourke, unveiled our Giant Mural – Artist Tracy Hancock’s impression of Tom Roberts’ iconic painting “Shearing the Rams’ – marking the 130th Anniversary since the completion of the painting at Brocklesby Station north of Corowa.

The Mural was funded by a bequest from the late Tim Fischer AC, local identity and ex Deputy Prime Minister of Australia. The Mayor spoke of his great respect and friendship with Tim, finishing with a quick rendition of “Click Go the Shears”!

Others speakers included Federation Council General Manager Mr Adrian Butler, artist Tracy Hancock and Robyn Sharman Hawking, a descendant of Jim Coffey, the 1st shearer in the painting.
