The Toolangi Sculpture Trail is a lovely short walk through the Toolangi Bushland Reserve. It has many fascinating sculptures to look at along the way. Plus it is a great walk to bring the kids along, but can be enjoyed by people of all ages.
The trail was originally created in 1996, but in celebration of the 20th anniversary in late 2016 15 artists’ added new works to it.
It starts from just behind the carpark at the rear of the Discovery Centre. There is a sign indicating the entrance to take. Roughly half way you will reach a junction, the left will take you back to the carpark. But take the right to complete the circuit. The trail loops back around to near the road and then towards the front of the Discovery Centre. Follow the sculptures back to the carpark.
Toolangi can be reached via Kinglake and C724 if coming from Northern or perhaps Western suburbs. Or B300, then C724. The Discovery Centre is next to the CFA at the East end of the town, with the carpark at the rear.
- Bring your camera for this, you’ll regret it if you forget.
