Pastoral Shadows of Brookong

A Drovers Life
Horse and Plow


Set on the outskirts of Lockhart on the road to Wagga Wagga, the Pastoral Shadows of Brookong is an easy grade, circular walk that takes you on a pictorial trail of Lockhart's history, creating a story through the use of rusted iron, scraps of metal, and other natural materials. 

Built over a number of years by the community, the impressive and ever growing collection of rusty iron sculptures capture the very essence of Lockhart's past, giving visitors a glimpse of rural life in the 1800s, when Lockhart and the area to the west of the town was a huge sheep station.

As you stroll through the sculptures, discover settlers, stockmen, drovers, and the ever popular 'Swaggy' amidst the sheep, kangaroos, farm dogs, and brolgas. 'A Drovers Life' and 'Horse and Plow' are just two of the impressive pieces created by the talented farm art sculpturer, Stuart Spragg.

Along the trail, comprehensive signage tells the history of Brookong Station and details the sculpture names and artists. 

Pastoral Shadows of Brookong is well worth the stroll and a camera is a must. Parking is available adjacent to the Lockhart Motel.
