Sculptures in the scrub

Wednesday, 8th May 2013
From the Sandstone Caves it was another 10km on the Newell Highway before turning West towards the Sculptures in the scrub in the Timallallie National Park. This free camping area is not yet in the CAW6 book – find more info here. This is a dirt road and is quite corrugated. The shaking in the LandCruiser was quite bad until we decided this is enough and let down the tyre pressure in LandCruiser and Caravan tyres. This certainly improved the ride – it would be an exaggeration if I said it made it comfortable.

There are quite a few sites to park the van. I wished I was better at reversing the van!

The walk to the sculptures is along a cliff-top overlooking a gorge. What a lovely setting to choose for a display of sculptures. All the sculptures relate in one way or another to the Aboriginal culture in this area.

Some interesting plants along the path.

After the last series of sculptures, we had the option of returning the same way we came or to return along the slightly longer path through the Dandry Gorge. I am glad we chose the gorge path as it was through interesting scenery and also gave us a different perspective on two of the sculptures.
