Visiting the Mosaic Wall

On a recent weekend we took our guests to the town of Nambucca Heads, to visit the mosaic wall. Although I have driven passed it previously this was the first time I actually got out of the car and walked the full length of it, approximately 30 metres.

Bus Stop at the End

The wall is in the main street in front of the Police Station  and  actually a combination of sculpture and tiling. It was a built by volunteers under the artist Guy Crossley, and started in 1996.

I wasn't all flat like a traditional mosaic.


Part of a seat.


What was amazing was all the old china, and wall plates used.


Used lots of Mugs

One of Few Flat Mosaics.



Plate in Middle

Looking the other way, notice the blue crocodile in the distance.



There was a large flat seat area at the end at the Bus Stop.



Unique Way to Wait for the Bus.

Plus this chair.


Nifty Seat.

Also spotted a few rubbish bins.





I highly recommend looking at this should you be passing. These are just a few pictures.

We ended up having a trip to Bellingen to the Old Butter Factory and afternoon tea at our favorite restaurant that we take mum, The Anchors Cafe on the water.

Wonderful day out.


 Till next time..
