A giant yellow kangaroo lounges lazily next to a watering hole whilst only a few metres away a polar bear looks to be sniffing the air. At Montalto Vineyard and Olive Grove on the Mornington Peninsula, they do things a little bit differently. It's this difference that makes the vineyard's sculpture walk a hit with visitors of all ages.
Being outdoors makes this collection a sensory experience to remember. Walk along a carpet of soft lush lawn to the start of the gravel path which lets you stroll amongst the sculptures. The sculptures by Australian artists stand alongside grapevines meandering down green slopes and mingle with bird life, whose calls pepper the air, amongst the property's wetlands.
Before or after your walk, take in a birds eye view of the sculptures as you watch the colours and shapes they make against the lolling slopes from the wineries fine dining room or their outdoor Piazza Cafe.
The exhibition is permanent. From now to the 1st May you can also see the finalists from the 2011 Montalto Sculpture Prize.
