With $146,055 from the Andrews Government, artist Hayden Dewar has brought this Werribee water tower back to life.

It was a privilege to officially acknowledge Hayden, Arts Assist Wyndham, and Southern Rural Water over the weekend for their work transforming the disused concrete tower into a spectacular art mural.

Dating back to 1914, this water tower used to play an important role for the Werribee community.

The fantastic new mural celebrates over a century of Werribee's heritage.

Congratulations to all involved, but especially Hayden. This project is something everyone in Werribee can be proud of.
