Mary MacKillop Trail


Client, Southern Grampians Shire Council

Design, manufacture and installation (2010)


The canonisation of Mary MacKillop was a significant event in 2010. A number of communities in Western Victoria collaborated to plan and implement a touring trail of significant sites in relation to Mary MacKillop’s life and work. Challis Design designed and manufactured fourteen interpretive signs that covered Mary MacKillop’s early years in Hamilton, Penola, Portland, Robe and Port Macquarie. The signs were manufactured using materials relevant to the region, including basalt in Hamilton and Portland and sandstone in Robe.
