When you arrive at Wynnum Central by train, this is the first thing you see…

Clearly this mural promoting ‘Wynnum Village’ has seen better days. By all accounts a number of efforts have been made over the years to get it fixed, but problems relating to access from the trackside and getting permission from Queensland Rail have stopped it being refurbished. Now that Wynnum has a brand update with the colourband and the central shopping area has the WynnumCentral brand, we think it’s time for a refresh. What do you think?

Do you remember when the original mural was painted? If you do please let us know, even better if you have any photos of the mural shortly after it was finished. We’d love to feature them here.

PS WynnumCentral has made some initial enquiries to see if we can get the mural updated. We’ll keep you posted.

  1. We absolutely need to improve this display. There are many local artists in the area that could even provide a fresh new look for the sign (council permitting of coarse!) First impressions do matter! And Wynnum has quite the bad rap already 🙁

  2. We need to get a major developer/financier such as AMP, MLC, DELFIN or the like to assist us to lift the image of Wynnum. My vision is that a Toowong Tower Shopping Centre type of development be established, incorporating the Wynnum Central Station, RSL land and the properties on the Western side of Tingal Road linked to the properties on the Eastern side of Tingal Road that backs onto the parkland of the old Wynnum Central State School. I realise that this is a multi million dollar investment , however believe that it is viable, especially if a Multi Plex Cimiena and major retailers are invited into the complex. The flow on to the smaller retailers would be substantial.
