The Niddrie mural is the largest outdoor painting in Moonee Valley. Niddrie Traders Group, with a grant from Moonee Valley Council, invited leading Australian artists Rowena Martinich and Geoffrey Carran to create the mural.
The work depicts Regents Honey Eaters on Yellow Gums, a bird that was once endemic in the area and now is endangered. Geoffrey and Rowena have been working closely with Bird Life Australia and have been impressed by the dedicated group of individuals committed to keeping the Regents Honey Eater alive. This mirrors the dedicated local community who have found the space and funding for the project.
This mural project is a work of significance that the community of Moonee Valley will benefit from as well as drawing visitors into the area.
