William Ricketts Sanctuary

Fancy a daytrip with a difference that's within easy striking distance of Melbourne? Well the William Ricketts Sanctuary may just be the ticket. Set in the Dandenongs, the park is set on four acres of bushland and contains the life work of sculpture/artist William Ricketts.

What sets this particular display apart is that the sculptures were designed to fit in with the natural surroundings; displaying the artists’ views on nature, feelings towards the native people of the land, his mother and indeed himself. All set within a leafy tree and fern surrounds. Whether you're an art lover, curious or just fancy a quiet stroll among the shady glade this may be one to add to your ‘to do’ list.


Those Who Stopped By

Scribe's Notes

This pitstop is where incoherent ramblings seem to have meaning, where things or events are thought of and assessed, where great things are documented and perhaps any not-so-good happenings are written down in attempt to be forgotten!

So from the diversely abstract to the intensely specific, it's off to making tracks, and it is here where it stops for a thought or two.
