A walking trail in Bundaleer Forest

Just ten kilometres south of Jamestown, you'll find Bundaleer Forest and its sculpture walking trail. After coming across this walk in the town's visitor guide, I thought we would check it out on the way to the Flinders Ranges.

The sculpture walk, best known for its series of somewhat intriguing three-dimensional works of art, starts from the picnic ground near the function centre. Parking is on the other side by the playground. Hence, being our first time, this caused a bit of a confusion and it took us some time to actually find the trailhead. From the carpark, you'll need to walk through the playground and pass the function centre to begin the walk.

The trail isn't well signposted, however, arrows are pointing towards the 'musical sculpture' on your right and the 'postcards sculpture' on your left. The musical sculpture basically looks like a giant percussion instrument while the postcards sculpture consists of multiple large-framed rectangular panels depicting various aspects of the forest. There is a pioneer cottage front, a jumping kangaroo, and densely planted pine and eucalypt trees among others.

Unfortunately, the markers aren't easy to follow from here on, so we had to turn back and miss out on the rest of the sculptures. I was also not prepared to explore further should the impending rain began to fall. Would love to hear from you if you've successfully walked this trail and found all the sculptures.
