Wonderwalls Festival – Wollongong Snapshot 2

I live in the regional city of Wollongong which is around 90 km south of Sydney. These days, not much divides the sprawling southern suburbs of Sydney and the northern suburbs of Wollongong. Once home to Aunty Jack[1] a 1970’s TV comedy, the cultural landscape is now much more diverse[2].

A recent addition has been the Wonder Walls Festival which is held in the last weekend of November. Our council invites[3] local and international artists to brighten up the walls around the city’s CBD.

After three consecutive years you can really notice the difference and the vibrant atmosphere this project is bringing to town.

Some of the works are very small scale and others are truly majestic. I hope it’s a tradition that is set to stay.

  1. Great art. I went down towards Wollongong recently, however I didn’t venture into the city, just headed down the coast from Sydney. I hope to go soon!
