About More Info

The mural, which is an artist's impression by Tracy Hancock, was unveiled on Saturday 4th October 2020 by the Mayor of Federation Council - Mr. Pat Bourke. The project was part of the celebration of the 130th Anniversary of the completion by Tom Roberts' of his iconic painting "Shearing the Rams' at Brocklesby Station, approximately 16 kilometres north of Corowa.

The mural was funded by a bequest from the late Tim Fischer AC, local identity and ex Deputy Prime Minister of Australia. The Mayor spoke of his great respect and friendship with Tim, finishing with a quick rendition of "Click Go the Shears".

Others speakers on the day included Federation Council General Manager Mr Adrian Butler, artist Tracy Hancock and Robyn Sharman Hawking, a descendant of Jim Coffey, the 1st shearer in the painting. Other descendants of people in the painting were also present for the unveiling.
