We love Sculpture Art Trails. We love a reason to explore the local area and find some unsung treasures. In this trail, we would never have gone to the Museum (excellent) or to the Sea Acres Rainforest Centre (excellent). We love how all these Art trails are multiple purpose - to raise awareness, to showcase the area and to highlight local artists. Well done! PS This is our fourth trail (Rhinos in Sydney & NSW, Cows in Perth & Bollards in Geelong) and it was really comparable and enjoyable - we found all the koalas except for 2 that were behind locked doors for Christmas.

These Koalas each painted differently by artists are found all over Port Macquarie. we only managed to find 15 but only had a brief visit. If I would have had more time I would have liked to track more down.
