The first sculpture commissioned for the Kangaroo Island Sculpture Trail in Penneshaw has been unveiled.

Kangaroo Island Plantation Timbers is proud to be the park’s first corporate sponsor, providing $5000 towards the impressive work created by renowned local sculptor Dave Clarke.

His impressive granite, steel and concrete work is inspired by the seed of the Red-Eyed Wattle, which grows throughout the trail precinct.

The trail has become a reality through the hard work and vision of the Penneshaw community and is a cherished addition to the cultural life of Kangaroo Island – and fast becoming a significant tourist attraction.
