This post will take you to a few different places, thanks to my archives.
The following slideshow of photos were taken along a shared pathway in Brisbane’s outer suburbs. We rode our bikes along here most days while we were in the area and loved finding different murals each time. Use the arrows to move through them.

The following photos were taken in various parts of New Zealand including Dunedin, Napier and Kawakawa and who could forget the living mural of bras at Cardrona.

Some posts I wrote while travelling in New Zealand
The first known use of the term of endearment Debz
I’ve been called Debs or Debz for quite some time now but when did it start?
I know the topic is Colourful Murals, but I was desperate to find this photo, of the first time I remember Debz being used.
I found the photo!! Back in 2006 we had a special birthday get together for our daughters’ birthdays, as they were turning 23, 21 and 18 and they were all in the same country – bonus! I organised a weekend in Sydney for all of us, together with their boyfriends, and I remember putting a lot of effort into the itinerary. I’m happy to say the weekend went off splendidly!
On our way back from dinner one night, we went through a tunnel known for its graffiti wall and we all lined up to leave a message – and this was done by one of the gang. It’s the first known use of Debz and I’m happy to say from then on it became a term of endearment which the girls all use to this day. I am known as Granny Debs now as well!
My Twitter handle is still @wonderwomandebz and I remember my work colleagues getting in on the action too.
The photo itself isn’t anything spectacular, (as I’m sure you’ll agree), but it’s very special to me and deserves to be included in my mural post!
(Aside: You don’t want to know how long I have been looking for this particular photo, and what we found in the process of looking – let’s just say oh the memories and leave it at that!)
Is there a link between murals and graffiti, do you think?
I’d love to know what your favourite image is from my selection!

A tragic accident at age 17, resulting in a Bravery Award from the Queen, didn’t deter Debbie from travelling the world. A young retiree, after being made redundant from her 22 year career managing education programs in a men’s correctional centre, she now loves reading, blogging, riding her ebike and a good cup of tea! Also known as Granny Debs to her 4 grandchildren.
