Gatepost Sculpture Trail - Across North and South Bruny Island

  • Once again we shall be running the ongoing and popular gatepost sculpture trail around Bruny Island.
  • Build, erect or fashion your fabulous sculpture at your gatepost and photograph it to show off its best sides by Monday 7th October.  (Entries close Sept 28th)
  • The sculpture has simply to fit a bird theme, but does not need to literally be a bird, it can be a silhouette, a feather, an egg ........ feel free to think outside the nest.
  • Why not make it a permanent sculpture that will join the many wonderful year round tributes to the importance of birdlife on Bruny Island
  • Prizes available //  $250 - Adult   // $50 and a book - Child (12 & under) 
  • Prizes generously provided by the Bruny Island Ferry Company
