The Star Spanner Sculpture Gardens is a remarkable attraction that reflects the artistic ability of John and Sonia Piccoli. Star Spanner Sculpture Garden is set in 2ha of manicured lawns and gardens with an abundant natural bird life. There are approximately fifty sculptures created from old farm spanners collected across Victoria.
Horses, bulls, fish, mermaids and men, all larger than life, inhabit the rambling garden - their spectacular forms crafted from rusty brown and gleaming silver spanners.
Despite their odd-shaped constituent parts, the intricate sculptures are superbly proportioned, giving them a strangely life-like quality.
John's other great passion is birds, and his rambling garden is dotted with enclosures housing brightly coloured and often rare species.
Operating hours - guided tours at 10am and 2pm Tuesday to Sunday. Closed Mondays and all of the July. Entry fee $10 per person.
Bus tours welcome, but must book in advance.
