#105 Revisit Yindyamarra Sculpture Walk

Time seems to stand still during a pandemic.

Early September arrived, and I realised with a shock that it was the first anniversary of losing Ziggy, my quirky little whippet. It seems like only yesterday.

More disturbingly, it hit me that without Ziggy, I hadn’t been on many of our previously shared outings for a whole year.

Time to:

#105 Revisit Yindyamarra Sculpture Walk

This walk was one of our pleasures, displaying wonderful indigenous sculptures in rambling bushland nestled between the Murray River and winding lagoons.

When it opened back in early 2015, I detailed the artworks in blog post #26 ‘Explore Your City like a Newcomer’.

In 2018, another sculpture was added:

But a lot can happen in a year, especially if your back is turned.

To my surprise, several of the gravel paths have now been sealed,

When did this happen?
Then …………………………………………………………………………and Now

(And doesn’t different weather change the mood!)

there’s improved signage

and additional, stunning new sculptures along the way.

And if you like the look of these photos, I can assure you that the real thing is so much better. Don’t wait a whole year to return.

      An excellent question, Jane. Your friend will be pleased to hear that it’s as long, or as short as she wants it to be, depending on where she chooses to dip in and dip out of it and how many sculptures she wants to see.
      Put another way, it isn’t a straight walk, or even a circular track,, rather it’s more “Start >———O———O————————>End” with entrances at the start, at 2 points in the second circle and again at the end. The majority of sculptures commence at the start and go to shortly beyond the second circle.
      Best of luck to your friend!
