Native Tuckeroo trees set to beautify Yelarbon streetscape

« Back

Goondiwindi Regional Council is set to plant nine native Tuckeroo trees in Yelarbon as the final addition to enhancing Taloom Street, following the replacement of the streetscape pathway with exposed aggregate, the installation of irrigation and the arrival of several heavy-duty custom-designed tree-grates.

The mature Tuckeroo trees are hardy and can tolerate frost, and Council has been able to source mature trees that allow us to plant now. The Tuckeroo tree's non-invasive root system, dense foliage and coloured flowers will further beautify the Yelarbon streetscape.

Goondiwindi Regional Council Mayor, the Honourable Councillor Lawrence Springborg AM, said the final enhancement of nine native Tuckeroo trees will be a valuable addition to the streetscape.

“I’d like to commend the Yelarbon Community Consultative Committee (CCC) on the success of the completed projects in the town’s masterplan thus far,” Cr Springborg said.

“The Yelarbon CCC has demonstrated a great commitment to working together as a community to achieve fantastic outcomes for residents and visitors.

“Yelarbon is a top attraction in the Goondiwindi Region, thanks to its award-winning silo art,” he said. “It's undeniable how much these recent projects have improved the town, and I'm looking forward to see what the Yelarbon CCC will accomplish as it continues to plan projects for next financial year,” he said.

Goondiwindi Regional Council has been working closely with the Yelarbon CCC to transform the aesthetics of the township.  Projects over the past four years have included:

  • Replacement of the pathway on Taloom Street with an exposed aggregate footpath 
  • A historical display at the Yelarbon Silo viewing area, including signage, gates and solar lights and improvements to the historical weighbridge
  • Dingo sculptures and replica fence installed beside the Dingo Barrier Fence strainer post
  • Several signs around the town to inform visitors of key historical features.
