Community House Port Lincoln is inviting locals and visitors alike to insert themselves into a new mural painted on the side of the The Pantry on Tasman Terrace.

The mural, located on the wall facing Lewis Street, was made possible thanks to the design work of Jason Moloney from SignFX and funding support Janet Forster from Calypso Star Charters.

The mural depicts a shark and some fish as well as a hamburger and invites people to stand in front of the mural, holding a hand up to the burger plate and insert themselves into the picture.

Community House Port Lincoln manager Linda Davies said the goal of the mural was to create something for people to be a part of as a tourist attraction.

"We tried to put together a mural that the public can be a part of," she said.

"We hope that this will become a known tourist attraction for Port Lincoln and at present we are holding a Facebook competition to give the shark a name."

Ms Davies said feedback received from tourists in Port Lincoln over the Easter period had been phenomenal with hundreds already posing in front of the mural.

This includes Adelaide visitor Allan Hill who said it was a great thing to have on display.

"We had the kids standing here the other day, taking photos," he said.

The Pantry is owned by Community House Port Lincoln to help provide real-life experience for those who need training or employment to help them find work.

Ms Davies this addition to the wall of The Pantry was a way Community House could provide something extra for tourism in the Port Lincoln CBD.

"This is Community House's way of trying to give back to the community by encouraging tourism for economic growth in the CBD," she said.
