Overview

Highlights

The Toolangi Sculpture Trail is a forest gallery where dozens of art pieces are dotted along the trail, which all been designed to fit into the natural environment. Half of the pieces have been here for over 20 years but celebrations in 2016 added a second burst of life with the addition of new pieces sourced sustainably from the forest with the assistance from DELWP. The park is made up of a large proportion of ephemeral art which responds to the site at that time and is not intended to last for an extended period.

Rather than removing work, the aim of the project is for the art work to decay back into the forest. In this way it becomes a part of the landscape and reflects the natural cycles of life and death. This trail is perfect for an afternoon dog walk, horse ride or stroll with the kids, wandering through archways, willow cubby houses and observing the fascinating sculptures and how they have blended in with nature over time. Send the kids on a treasure hunt and be sure to keep an eye out for an owl in a tree and a lizard riding a bike.
