TOURISM INFRASTRUCTURE PROJECT
West Darling Arts is the partner helping to deliver the 4 new sculptures along Sturt's Steps to help interpret the stories of the region. Jo Crase has come to us with great experience in the curation of stories and we look forward to watching these stories come to life with our chosen artists. Sculptures will be located at Yanco Glen, Packsaddle, Milparinka, and Tibooburra and will complement the, already underway, Bilby & Bandicoot sculptures that will be located in the Sturt National Park.
Welcome Barnson Pty Ltd
Barnson's have been successful in a competitive tender process in providing services to the project in the area of planning and design for the Milparinka Town MasterPlan, Camp Kitchens and providing specifications for various construction elements involved in the project.
New Animals coming to Wild Deserts
The sculpture trail that will be enjoyed by visitors experiencing the Sturt's Steps Touring Route will include some significant animal representations in Sturt National Park.
These sculptures are the first to be commissioned for the sculpture trail and will represent the significant project that is Wild Deserts by displaying larger than life Bilby's and a Bandicott courtesy of artists Brian Campbell & Ivan Lovatt.
The Coonamble Times covered the story in the 14th September 2020 edition.
As part of the Sturt's Steps Project the Waterhole at Milparinka received a make-over removing considerable silt build up and rubbish that had to be dumped over the years. This is truly started to form an oasis in the desert and a great place for visitors to relax. Located just below the Milparinka Caravan Park, it provides an excellnt outlook as well.
