THE latest mural added to the Maryborough Mural Trail reflects the brightly coloured headgear worn by one of the Heritage City’s favourite identities.
The 39th mural on the trail can be found on the wall of the Bearing Service Centre at 113 Richmond Street.
It celebrates the more than 30-year career of Alison Coleman who helped keep the CBD clean and tidy.
The Fraser Coast Regional Council described Alison as a great ambassador for the city of Maryborough, helping many visitors with directions and other important bits of information.
She was always easily recognisable with her distinctive feathered hat.
The mural has been named ‘Feather in the Hat’ and was created by artist Julie Davis.
Council took to social media to thank the Maryborough Mural Trail and Division 4 Councillor Daniel Sanderson for bringing the artwork to life.
Alison retired on her 70th birthday in 2018 after 37 years on the job.

“Alison did a remarkable job to keep the CBD clean and tidy and was a great ambassador for Maryborough, helping many visitors with directions and information,” Cr Sanderson said.
“She was easily recognisable with her distinctive feathered hat festooned with red-tailed black cockatoo, pheasant, parrot, emu and guinea fowl feathers.”
The mural of Alison was funded from Cr Sanderson’s Discretionary Fund.
