The George Town Water Tower was painted in 1985 and to date, this is the oldest painted water tower that I have discovered. 1985 makes it 33 years old. Way to go Tasmania for leading the way in this wonderful new art trend that is now sweeping Australia.

This water tank was directed by Wayne Hutchins from NSW and Diana North from Launceston. They were assisted by Darren Viney and Michelle Johns of George Town. A special mention went to Cathy, Kevin, Jenny and Heath for helping complete the project.

 It would not have been possible without the assistance of George Town Council, CEP, Australian Council, TAS arts advisory board , Comalco, TAA, George Town High School, Hec and Gunn Genders Hardware.
