The sound of shaken spray-cans has been missing from the Wollongong CBD this November, with the annual Wonderwalls festival absent.
The city still boasts the remnants of the street art celebration from years gone by with larger-than-life portraits and abstract murals still splashed across many once drab building facades.
But that will be it for the suburb.
Festival organiser Simon Grant of Verb Syndicate has confirmed there will not be a festival this year, though assured it would return in early 2019 at a new location.
Mr Grant has been working with Wollongong City Council and has received funding from round two of the Port Kembla Community Investment Fund.
He didn’t want to give too much away yet, but said Port Kembla is set to be the new home for Wonderwalls.
Meantime, a spokeswoman for council said they were looking forward to seeing the new incarnation of the festival.
“The large murals created through this event have become landmarks in our city centre, and complement council’s plans and initiatives to create an active and vibrant space in and around the CBD,” she said.
“We look forward to seeing what the Wonderwalls concept will bring to Port Kembla.”
