Open doors for mural tours

We are opening our doors to the public this weekend to showcase a unique mural — part of the Open House Geelong program.

In 1977, the (then) Geelong Water and Sewerage Trust commissioned renowned artist and illustrator Robert Ingpen to create a mural for its new offices in Ryrie Street.

Image shows a section of the mural in the Barwon Water boardroom. Part of the boardroom table and chairs are visible in the foreground. The Open House Geelong brand is overlaid.

The historic mural painted by local artist Robert Ingpen is housed in the Barwon Water boardroom. 

The mural, which depicts water cycle management in the Geelong region, is 2.8 metres tall and almost 7 metres long.

Once the pride of the Ryrie Street customer service centre, the mural now adorns the Barwon Water boardroom.
