The Kangaroo Island Sculpture Trail is a community vision.
The trail is set on 4.45 hectares of land overlooking the stunning Hog Bay, within the centre of the township of Penneshaw. Visible from the main arrival and departure point for locals and visitors to the Island, the Sealink ferry terminal, it aims to become well known as the premier sculpture trail in South Australia and one of the top 10 in Australia. A key point of difference will be the interpretation of nature and its forms, focusing on large sculptured works encompassing natural materials, found or reclaimed objects. It also has significant levels of resident wildlife further adding to its appeal.
The current site includes 4 main character precincts – sand hills, a deep ravine, bursia heath and woodland allowing considerable interpretative scope for artists and the ability to design an easywalking trail with distinct nodes at numerous locations for art installations.
