Understory – Southern Forest Arts

Let your imagination guide and your heart connect... Every place (no matter how small) has 'understories' - secrets, songs, dreams - that help us connect with the 'spirit of place'. This connection enriches our sense of self and our sense of belonging. The Understory sculpture walk trail is the first purpose built walk trail within Australia to permanently feature specially commissioned artworks from a range of different art forms.
Sculpture, music and writing have been commissioned from nationally and internationally renowned creative personnel to reflect the social, cultural and environmental heritage of the Southern Forests region. The 1.2 km walk circuit showcases the awe-inspiring Karri, Jarrah and Marri forest of the Northcliffe Forest Park. 

Permanent and ephemeral (temporary) sculptures are located at varying intervals along the trail, with poetry, prose, storytelling, photography and music appearing in associated publications and audio tours. 

The Sculpture Walk commences from the Northcliffe Information and Visitor Centre. Entry fees include a range of five different audio tours and a comprehensive Trail Guide. 

The Sculpture Walk is open Daily 10.00am - 4.00pm, last entry 3pm.
