Cityscapes, seascapes and stunning landscapes make up many of the art trail panels on the border of the Invercargill Central Ltd development site.

Public relations manager Amy Hibbs said more than 200 murals painted by artists, community groups, schools and early learning centres have been involved in the initiative.

Brightening up the 20,000 sqm site which will eventually be turned into a vibrant central business hub, the art panels make up the fencing around the outside of the redevelopment.

Also featured on the murals were rabbits, tuis, dream wings, portraits, signatures and window graphics.

Invercargill Central Ltd has turned the Bank of New South Wales building into an information hub for people to come and hear more about the development.
