Sculptures in the Scrub Walk

img_20161010_154508Timallallie National Park (near Pilliga) hosts the award winning project of Sculptures in the Scrub. A beautiful easy walk through bushland, where local Aboriginal people and their elders have created pieces of art work scattered along the trail to provide information on local artist and the aboriginal culture.

The walk follows the top of the cliffs displaying amazing art pieces from local aboriginal people. Taking our time to explore these we continue down into the beautiful Dandry Gorge.

The walk is an approximate 3km loop.  As we wondered down hill into the Gorge the landscape changes into a lush area of green valley, displaying the amazing cliff faces following a small stream. The walk starts and finishes at the picnic area. There is toilets, picnic area and a camp area. Check with National Parks or the local tourist information centers at Coonabarabran or Baradine before entering park for updates on road conditions. The area is very remote and road conditions can change dramatically with wet condition
