Sculpture & Heritage Trail

Great news! The Bunyip of Burra Creek is one of four new sculptures which will remain as permanent displays in Lockhart! There are now over twenty incredible sculptures to discover. 

Park the car and take a stroll around the main streets of Lockhart as you follow our award winning Lockhart Sculpture and Heritage Trail. One of the most popular attractions in the town, history and art are an easy path to follow through Lockhart, where rusty farm art sculptures blend with wide shady verandahs, typical turn of the century architecture, and over 400 images etched in pavers.

Many of the beautiful sculptures on display are award winning pieces from Lockhart’s Spirit of the Land Festival, a celebration to the resilience of those who live and work on the land. Created from recycled farm materials and reflecting the natural elements of the land, first time visitors to the town are amazed and awed at the high quality artwork that far exceeds their expectations.

This easy grade walk around the charming town centre and parkland areas includes the town's restored Federation verandahs. Passing under shady verandahs and well preserved shop fronts as you follow the trail, stop and take in the town’s impressive collection of etched pavers which depict the life and social history of the town and district.

In addition to the farm art sculptures born from the Spirit of the Land Festival, a new sculptural project was started by members of the community, who worked with Lockhart Shire Council to create a pictorial history walk, the Pastoral Shadows of Brookong.

Telling the story of pastoral settlement in the district, the impressive sculptures and silhouettes of Pastoral Shadows of Brookong bring history to life and this is another easy stroll not to be missed. The Pastoral Shadows walk ties into the extensive collection on Brookong Station, housed in Greens Gunyah Museum.

The Museum is home to the inspiring Doris Golder Wool Art Gallery, and the local visitor information centre.

Other items of interest along the Trail are the Pioneer Memorial Gates, the Lockhart Love Locks, the Lockhart Walk of Fame and the Lockhart Water Tower which was completed in September 2018.
