Sheffield, in the foothills of majestic Mount Roland, is a friendly rural town where history and art merge to create an entire town of murals. Once a centre for industry, the town has reinvented itself as an arts community. The famous Sheffield murals trace the history of the area and feature Cradle Mountain pioneer Gustav Weindorfer, Tasmanian Tigers, and pictorial representations of characters and stories of the past. Mural Park is home to the annual Mural Fest painting competition, with nine artists participating in a paint-off over six and a half days. With more than 140 murals, Sheffield is Tasmania's own outdoor art gallery.
