• Naturally Loddon Festival Launch: Father's Day at Piccoli's Star Spanner Sculpture Gardens


Enjoy a relaxing Father's Day afternoon at the Star Spanner Sculpture Gardens wandering around the manicured gardens, filled with John's amazing spanner sculptures.

John has created over 50 sculptures made of farm spanners. The largest is a full-size Clydesdale pulling a wagon, and the tallest is made from 3500 spanners. As well as the sculptures, there are beautiful birds – like the macaws – that the kids just love, and over two acres of garden to relax in.

Barbeque, afternoon tea and refreshments will be available all day. There will be  a jumping castle and face painting for the kids.

This is a great chance to come along and see everything John has created, and enjoy a great family day out at the same time.

The Official launch of the Naturally Loddon Spring Festival is at 1pm.

This year sees author and horticulturist, Kevin Walsh, appearing as a special guest. Kevin’s best-selling book Waterwise Plants and Gardening was the first of its kind in Australia and has been in print for over 25 years. With over 30 years’ experience in horticulture, Kevin has worked in nurseries and parks planning and has won National awards in his field. Appearing as an expert on ABC Radio Bendigo’s Gardener’s Talkback for over 15 years, Kevin will be available for questions on the day.
