Cassowary Art Trail

The Cassowary Art Trail sets out to educate local communities and tourists alike on the value of the cassowary to provide unique and exclusive education to the sustainability and diversity of the rainforest, as well as to promote Tropical North Queensland as a must-see destination and bring tourists into the region.

Life-sized cassowary statutes are painted by individual indigenous and non-indigenous artists in each of the towns where the painted cassowaries are placed. Each artist was using their local knowledge and creativity to illustrate their connection to the cassowary and will express the story in his painting. 

The Cassowary Art Trail is a not-for-profit project, initiated by Jurg Jutzi in partnership with Kuranda Conservation Community Nursery Inc. The kick-off for the Art Trail was achieved 2022 in Kuranda with local contributions from businesses and organisations as well as the Regional Art Development Fund (RADF) grant. By mid-2023 the Cassowary Art Trail will have grown to 6 painted statues.
