Botanic Gardens 1

The botanical gardens in Alice were named after a local eccentric who set them up in the early eighties. There isn't a whole lot there but occasionally it's nice to escape. There's a few interesting sculptures that have been donated, like the couple of sprinkler sculptures which I find really cool.


  1. Somewhere out there - you know 'out there' - there is a sculpture park thingo beside a road. I think it has a plane in it. Bits of a plane. And other stuff - stood on end. Sqeuwiff. Lots of things in that neck of the woods is a bit like that - too many railway nails and not enough wood.

  2. looks nice and quirky. I LOVE botanic gardens. they are alwyas the first place I visit. Then the art gallery.
