On our travels within Australia one of the places I wanted to visit just outside of Melbourne was the Bruno Art and Sculpture Gardens. Unfortunately, we never made it there. It is the one regret I have as getting back to Australia isn’t likely at this point. If you are one of the lucky ones to traverse Australia and you are in the neighbourhood you should definitely check it out. Please google for link to their site for a glimpse into a magical world.
South American artist Bruno Torf’s eclectic sculpture garden near Melbourne began with 15 life-sized terra cotta sculptures set in sub-alpine forests, and a gallery of smaller artwork. In 2009, the sculptures just barely survived devastating local fires, while the artist’s home and gallery were completely destroyed. Bruno has painstakingly rebuilt his sculpture gardens and a bigger gallery. Nature and art at its best!
