The Dwellingup General Store has been revamped by new owners and includes an incredible mural by internationally-renowned Perth artist, Kyle Hughes-Odgers.

The bold artwork is a narrative-based work inspired by the natural environment in Dwellingup – the Munda Biddi Trail, flora, fauna and human interaction.

The refurbishment was supported by the Shire of Murray’s Façade Refurbishment Program, designed to help revitalise Pinjarra and Dwellingup Town Centres. 

Shire President David Bolt said, the program is an initiative that supports our ‘Place’ aspiration in our Council Plan to ensure our rural charm is preserved while we grow by embracing innovative urban design ideas.

“The program aims to support and assist landowners and local business owners with revitalisation and activation of the Pinjarra and Dwellingup town centres to create active, vibrant, attractive and safe places for our community and visitors to enjoy”, Shire President Bolt said.

As an incentive to encourage landowners and local business owners to upgrade their building façades, the program will offer successful applicants the opportunity to receive a matched 50% financial contribution of eligible works to a maximum value of $20,000 to put towards works that will improve the visual appearance and assist with activation of the two town centres.

Applications for the 2023-24 financial year are open. For more information, visit Facade Refurbishment Subsidy Program.
