This was a great find for us - recommended by people at the Jindi Cafe. The sculptor, Laurie, is a great bloke, happy to talk about his work and things more broadly. A stroll around the garden viewing the sculptures is a very pleasant thing to do. Do be warned however - it may cost you. We have been there twice in a month and have purchased a sculpture both times!
A peaceful, pleasant place to go.

My friend and I headed to Jindivick today for two reasons--

1. To have lunch at the Jindi Cafe
2. To visit this Sculpture Garden

The views as you drive out to Jindivick will capture your breath... and even when you stop just inside the Sculpture Garden... the views of the surrounds are stunning. 
Laurie came out and we asked how much it is to tour the gardens and it is entirely  free. There is an option to give a donation inside if you wish to. But Laurie explained everything briefly and left us to do our tour, he invited us to the workshop after we had looked around.
It's not a long walk to walk through the gardens, but it will take you some time to view the delights on offer. The garden is lovely, the sculptures intriguing and beautiful. We really enjoyed walking through the garden and afterwards we went inside the gallery. The gallery pieces are very unique. Greeting cards are available at a very reasonable price inside the gallery... made my Laurie's lady.
Laurie then took us inside and asked what we wanted him to make. I was astonished that he asked, but my friend suggested a frog. In less than ten minutes Laurie worked his magic and handed my friend a sheet metal frog. It was astounding how quickly he did it. Laurie is one of the most interesting people you will ever meet. He has a beautiful mind that sees things so differently to most. He truly is inspired. As an ex-school teacher I have no doubt he inspired his students.
My friend and I bypassed the donation box and purchased items to take home instead. EFTPOS is offered. I believe this is one of those special places that you should visit... it's whimsical, unconventional, quaint.

Laurie is not only a very talented and creative sculptor but also a lovely person who made us feel very welcome. He also makes space in the indoor gallery for the works of other artists.

A true artist, friendly and inspiring character. After our self-guided tour, Laurie generously made my son an icon of his choice using his laser cutter, for free. That got my son interested and asking lots of questions about how the process of how Laurie made the sculptures from metal. After visiting the outdoor sculpture garden, do not miss the indoor gallery which has lots of amazing pieces as well.

Going past & dropped in for a look. Lots of weird stuff but never saw a thing that I would throw in the car from a hard rubbish dump. Prices from $300.00 to $1000.00 Ha Ha. All covered with cobwebs so I don't think they sell much. Worth a visit? Only if you happen to be driving past or like weird artistic stuff.

We'd seen a brochure at our accommodation about Laurie's Sculpture Garden as both of us are whimsical artists ourselves, we had to visit. What a lovely surprise to find Laurie there himself in the middle of one of his eclectic creations. We chatted for a while then looked at the current exhibition inside. Wow. Lovely pieces.
We then spent around a half hour walking around the grounds where there are an abundance of amazing pieces. Whether made from old bike rims or engine blocks, there is something for everyone here. Many of you will say 'I remember those' or 'my grandpa used to have one of those' because each piece is so different and has a story to tell.
You may need to look for some pieces as they can be low to the ground, in a tree, hidden behind another and so on.
Laurie was keen to show us his laser cutter which to me was so sweet. He made us our own little icon octopus for free but we dropped him a $20 to say thank you.
There are no refreshments on site but there are toilets. Plenty of parking onsite as well. I'm sure if you wanted to site under a tree and have lunch Laurie wouldn't mind.
Do know that Laurie is an artist and like most artists is a generous soul. Please treat him, his family and his sculptures with respect.
I snapped alot of photos so only putting up my faves.
Don’t miss the mirror mosaic Mercedes
We will return.

Driving through the hills with my partner and we decided to check out the local sculpture garden. It was quiet small but still great to walk around whe drinking a coffee.

The outside sculpture garden offers you the chance to see the artwork in the great outdoors. Interesting use of nuts and bolts and other scrap. Most pieces available to buy. The indoor gallery has a great selection of smaller pieces using metal and wood, along with some paintings.

Meet Laurie and the two dogs for a warm and boisterous welcome! Wander around the gardens and take in the quirky sculptures scattered along the paths. Pop into the gallery to view the current monthly exhibition from local artists. Watch Laurie play with his new plasma toy. He'll cut you an owl or a dingo or a magpie to take away with you free if he's not teaching a local to weld. This is a place with a difference. Don't miss it.
