Benalla Street Art and the Wall to Wall Street Art Festival
- Street art can be viewed at all times, the festival is in April each year
Benalla Street Art is a small group of like-minded art loving locals from Benalla, who are responsible for Victoria's first Regional Urban Contemporary Street Art Festival called Wall to Wall, which started in 2015. A collective of home grown and international street artists was commissioned to transform their town.
The weekend saw thousands of locals and 'out-of-towners' tour the various murals to watch the artwork appear in front of their eyes. The excitement, the buzz, the interest and the spirit of it all was tangible. The results are truly amazing and speak for themselves. 14 high quality colourful murals created by world reknowned street artists adorn once featureless walls.
The amazing street art can be viewed at any time, and the Benalla Wall to Wall Street Art Festival is an annual event in April each year.

Benalla Ceramic Mural
This community project and public space has intrigued all who have explored it. Created by skilled and unskilled artists alike with recognised input from aboriginal groups the curvaceous terracotta clay Ceramic Mural with its collanades, cave seats, "thongaphones" and amphitheatre invites the curious to explore its many features.
The mural evokes the structures and spaces created by the celebrated Spanish artist Antoni Gaudí.
