Jandowae has a Timbertown Tree!

The Jandowae Timbertown Tree now stands proudly in the park in the centre of town, celebrating both the Timbertown Festival, and Jandowae’s proud timber milling history.

The tree is made from corten steel and fitted with lights so it is visibile in the main street during the day and night.

Next time you’re heading through town, make sure to stop & take a photo with the Timbertown Tree. Post it on your socials using the hashtag #timbertowntree and tag us, @JandowaeTimbertown on Facebook and @jandowaetimbertownfestival on Instagram so we can find and share. While you’re here, make sure you visit some of our fantastic local businesses. We’d love to see you in town!

The Timbertown Tree was designed by the Festival committee and funded with the help of the Western Downs Regional Council’s Festival’s Placemaking Initiative.  

The tree was officially lit up for the first time by Cr Kaye Maguire at a community event in October, and we’re pretty pleased with how it turned out!

A Walk Through Jandowae

Welcome to JANDOWAE, a friendly town proud of its community, industry, lifestyle and history. A town so proud that it tells its story on many of the power poles in the town centre through High Street and George Street.

Dalby Artist Graeme McCullough (GRAZART) was commissioned to paint the town’s story in 2016. Not only did he paint the story but he made the town centre come alive with colour, wonderful images that wind around the poles and also a little humour. Graeme is a truly talented artist who took an idea and produced works of art on the most unusual easel. Thanks to Graeme, Jandowae boasts a terrific Power Pole walk that tells a story to all who visit.

The Jandowae Story:

Entering Jandowae (from Dalby/Jimbour side) we welcome all visitors and display our sporting lifestyle. Jandowae has many great sporting facilities within the community and district, a wide range of sporting clubs and hosts a number of special events during the year. Strolling along the park area on your left you will observe the painted power poles telling the story of Jandowae events including our wonderful Biennial Timbertown Festival, as well as, the annual Trail Bike Ride, Jandowae Races and Golf Tournaments. Continuing along High St you’ll come to the Showgrounds pole that tells about our great show which is held in March each year as well as showing that horse riding is a passion in our local area – numerous Jandowae youngsters have honed their riding skills at the local Pony Club.

As the journey continues along High St you will see the creative way that Graeme painted the story of Jandowae’s Defence Force history (this can also be seen in George St outside the Memorial Hall). Graeme chose a comical and interesting way to demonstrate that children are a highlight of our community as are our numerous parks. He went on to paint some of our native flora and fauna making it almost come alive on our power poles. The cameraderie of the locals and the spirit within the community can be depicted in the artwork that Graeme has painted on some of the power poles.

Jandowae’s past and present day industries and businesses have been portrayed so that you are left with an impression of what is important within our community and what has shaped our community in the past. Graeme’s artwork tells the story of our farming lifestyle and local influences within our district. He has painted the story of our tourist attractions such as the Dingo Fence, Athlone Cottage and Bird-watching Trails. We see the great fundraising efforts and local influence that the people of our community made in the past to provide us with a range of Emergency Services. The timber industry is depicted in a number of ways to show Jandowae’s rich history in this field.

Graeme has painted our story not only with skill and respect but added a dash of humour that can be seen when looking at the closer details of a number of the power poles.

Thank you Graeme for your portrayal of the Jandowae Story.

Best wishes for the Fine Art and Photography Exhibition and 2018 Timbertown Festival Official Opening event – you truly deserve the honour of being the ‘Feature Artist’ of this event.
