Hit the Critter Trail these school holidays

The April school holidays are almost here, and with it brings the return of the Critter Trail on Chapman: an interactive experience for young detectives.

Coordinated by the Geraldton Regional Art Gallery (GRAG), the Critter Trail is a series of art pieces along the CBD portion of Chapman Road depicting critters that have ‘borrowed’ art from the City’s Collection.

City of Greater Geraldton Mayor Shane Van Styn encourages families to have a bit of fun with it.

“Take a walk along Chapman Road and see if you can spot what letter each of the critters has made off with,” he said.

“Once you have solved the puzzle, pop into GRAG and drop the password into the Critter Chest.

“During the school holidays every participant will get a ‘reward’ for their efforts including stickers and a bookmark.”

During the Easter School Holidays primary school-aged children can also attend a Critter Workshop where they will create their own Crazy Critters to take home. This free event will take place at GRAG on 21 April from 10am – 12pm and registration via Eventbrite is essential.

Local artists Luke Barlow, Rachel Weaver and Shah Jackey are the talent behind the cheeky Critters.

Visitors to the area are also encouraged to take advantage of the Selfie Walls along the way and use the hashtag #crittertrailonchapman when uploading to social media.

The Critter Trail is part of the Chapman Road Tactical Urbanisation Pilot Project, an RAC WA funded 12 month trial that has seen Chapman Road transform into a place for people and not just cars.
