Arts and Culture

The Shire of Dandaragan prioritises the strengthening of community spirit and resilient, connected communities.  We recognise the value of creative and cultural arts and support its' continued growth in our communities.

Arts and Culture Plan

In 2019 / 2020, the Shire is working on developing and implementing it's first Arts and Culture Plan - Vibrant Communities

The aim of the Vibrant Communities Plan is to build on the existing artistic networks and talents within the Shire.

During development of the Plan, the Shire will work with community representatives, groups, artists and the broader community to identify key locations across the Shire for arts and culture and new public art opportunities.  Once completed, the Shire will have a plan to consider future arts and culture priorities and budgeting considerations.

The community will be included in the consultation at each stage of the project and workshops are due to begin in March 2020.

For further information, contact the Shire of Dandaragan Community Development Officer.

Art Trails

Badgingarra is a wonderfully creative community and is home to the Badgingarra Art Trail.  The walk / cycle / art trail starts opposite the Badgingarra Community Centre on the corner of North West Road and Brand Highway - park in the golf course carpark.  The trail is 4.2 km long and you can ride your bicycle or walk along the trail stopping along the way to see art sculptures created by artist Natalie Tonkin and the local community.  The sculptures are a combination of metal and timber and are designed by hand to represent the Badgingarra community in all its' diversity.  The trail ends at the Vern Westbrook Walk which also includes quirky little sculptures made from scrap and created by local children.

Cervantes is home to many individual art pieces on both public, and hidden away on private, land.  Features include the Don Quixote Wind Vane and The Dhufish on Cervantes Road, El Cordoba Matador on Cordoba Way, and the Heron on a Pole beachside on Corunna Road.  Enjoy the abstract Pinnacles mural at Catalonia Park while sipping coffee at the Seashells Cafe, or R Smith's historical mural beside the general store in Cadiz Street.  There are so many more art works to find in Cervantes so head to our local visitor centres in Cervantes or Jurien Bay for more information.
