Interactive delights await Nathalia visitors

AN interactive artwork where native critters leap out of the floor was officially unveiled at the Barmah Forest Heritage and Education Centre and Visitor Information Centre last week.

Melbourne-based artist Ulla Taylor had spent three weeks painting a three dimensional Murray River walkway that leads visitors around the centre’s gallery space.

The illusionary artwork appears as if visitors could sink into the banks of the Murray, while local marsupials, birds, reptiles and even a Murray Cod rise out of the flat surface.

Solar farm could get go 

MOIRA Shire looks likely to give the green light to a planning application for a large scale solar farm in Wunghnu, at tonight’s ordinary council meeting in Cobram.

Council documents recommend granting the application for a renewable energy facility on Wunghnu Road, which could generate enough electricity to power 42,000 households. 

 

Eyeing off sixth

NATHALIA’S A grade netballers have put themselves into finals contention with a fantastic win over Congupna on Saturday 55-35.

The Purples played a great game. They combined well as a team, absorbed the pressure from Congupna and pushed back. Their ball movement from end to end was terrific, and they finished off with a strong last quarter.
