  • I've been in and around Dandenongs for years without coming across this place. Very unique and worthwhile to visit. The area can be steep and slippery.
  • It took me 39 years to get here and I only live 20 minutes away. Buggered if I know why, because it's a peaceful, interesting place to visit and enjoy on your own or with your family and friends.
  • Beautiful little place to explore, especially on a chilly day. Only an hours drive from Melbourne and offered a great insight into an interesting artist.
  • I felt like I stepped in a fairy land.. Such a beautiful place to visit!
  • A Nice walk, and it was free. Interesting sculpture
