This walking trail of uplit outdoor works of will be installed at various scenic points on the property,  and will be exclusively on in January 2020.

*Sally Hart - woven installations

*Christopher Trotter - upcycled farm machinery and items

*Colleen Lavender - lasercut steel

*Antone Bruinsma - sandstone

*Alicia Lane - Copper

*Therese Flynn-Clarke - fiber

*Ferrol Critter Creations - steel

*Business 4 Climate Action - wood

*Innes Larkin - recycled steel


Guests are invited to explore the property, especially in the late afternoon when the sculptures are best experienced and photographed with against the silhouette of Mt Barney and the sunset colours, and taking time to watch the embedded lighting come to life against the darkening evening sky.
