The mural commemorates the Australian Light Horse regiments and its connection to the Upper Murray. 

The mural is located on the wall at Bailey’s Mechanical Service in Donaldson Street, behind the Memorial and RSL halls. Known as the Athenaeum Art Project, it also relates to the former Athenaeum Hall which was constructed in 1914 and demolished in 1958 to make way for the present memorial hall. 

A QR code will allow visitors to find out more about the artist and the story behind the mural. Among other materials, inspiration was drawn from a book, Light Horsemen of the Upper Murray, produced by teacher Steve Learmonth and students at Corryong College which can now be accessed through an online database.
