Thetraveljunkie.org – On our way back from Blairgowrie we decided to visit McClelland Sculpture Park and Gallery, celebrated as the home of Australian sculpture. Located 41 minutes from Blairgowrie or Melbourne at the gateway to the Mornington Peninsula.
A quite and silent location where present and future are represented by materials and curves, and where artists wanted to turn art into sculpture, sculpture into beauty, and beauty into therapy.
With a wide-ranging collection of more than 100 sculptures, the park comprises eight hectares of designed landscape and vast areas of indigenous bushland.
And, McClelland’s exhibition program focuses on the development of modern sculpture and various forms of spatial practice, and encourages contemporary artists to develop and address challenging issues current in Australia and a global context.
Stay tuned for more of our adventures in Melbourne, Australia.
Happy Sustainable Travels!

But we do it because we believe our perspective matters – because it might well be your perspective, too.
