Marysville - Bruno's Art & Sculpture Garden




The original and unique artworks of sculptor and painter Bruno Torfs continues to bring joy and inspiration to visitors from all over the world. Nestled amongst the luscious rainforest setting lives a collection of unforgettable characters lovingly hand crafted by Bruno from clay and fired onsite in his kiln. Bruno has created a world rich with fantasy and insightful beauty derived from his imagination and inspired by his intrepid journeys to some the world most intriguing and remote regions.

Review:


This is place that parents should really enjoy and they can make it an interesting and fun visit for children. Bruno has infectious enthusiasm and is sure to show you his painting of Mona Lisa whose eyes follow you around the room (that's Mona Lisa's eyes and not Bruno's).

An interesting element of the visit are the photos of the garden and sculptures after the Black Saturday bushfires.

There is a gallery at the entrance which has art work and some smaller sculptures. As you move to the garden you pass through Bruno's workshop where you can see some new sculptures which Bruno is working on. The gardens which are deceptively large have now grown back after the fires and there are lots of sculptures scattered throughout. There are many paths splitting off through bushes and trees which are a combination of Australian native trees and overseas trees which turn to golden colours in Autumn. You could easily spend an hour wandering about.

There are lots of full size characters and many of them have quirky elements. Can you find the 27 mice on Mouseman? Can you find the sleeping bat made from forks?
