Barraport - Piccoli’s Spanner Sculptures



John and Sonia Piccoli have a two acre garden has many large sculptures which John has made from old spanners placed amongst the trees and garden beds. 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.

Birds are also a feature and the rambling garden is dotted with enclosures housing brightly coloured and often rare species.

A collection of 84 different types of old horse-drawn equipment line the front and back driveways. Many other interesting things are to be seen as you walk
through the magnificent garden.

One of John's sculptures can be seen at the eastern entry to Boort.
