Toolangi Sculpture Trail (Toolangi)




The Toolangi Sculpture Trail showcases the works from the international sculpture event held at the Toolangi Forest Discovery Centre in 1996. The sculptures are the work of a diverse group of top professional artists from Australia and the Asia-Pacific region.

Eight of the original sculptures are still visible along the trail. They are all in different states of decay as intended. Information boards along the trail give you some basic information about the artist and the inspirations behind their work.

The distance of the sculpture trail is 1.5 km which is about a 1 hour duration return.

Review:


As you travel on the Healesville-Kinglake Road in the direction of Healesville, go past the C.J Dennis Hall, past the Fire Station and look for the Forest Discovery Centre sign. The lovely Forest Discovery Centre is unfortunately now boarded up and not used (apparently not sufficiently fire rated). The sculpture trail is in a rather dilapidated state and can be a bit tricky to find. At the Discovery Centre follow the sign "Yea River Walk" and then head into the bush when you come across the Sculpture Trail sign (but do not cross the road). Along the path there are some information signs covered in in-grained mud which is hard to read. The trail is fairly distinct and can be followed easily enough, even though it is a bit overgrown. It is quite exciting to find the sculptures along the way. The trail shouldn't take more than about 30 minutes. When you get to the end of the trail, about 50m downhill there is a shelter with some displays on logging, BBQs and table.
