History of the Sculpture Park The Sculpture Park was created in 1996 and its first artworks were made up of art from the Macquarie Biennial Acquisitive sculpture prize. In the year 2000 the gallery began commissioning several works that fit in with the Aboriginal and cultural landscape of the park.
The Sculpture Park The walking trail was easy to follow because each sculpture stands out and makes an impression.

The Love Boat was my favourite sculpture. It consists of two wooden figures sitting back to back and is meant to symbolise the struggle between two egos in the beginning of a relationship, as they try to retain their own personality within the relationship.
