While you’re exploring our towns take note of the hidden gems, with sculptures and art pieces popping up right across the region. From scrap metal brolgas to stunning wall murals and giant spiders, these pieces can be appreciated by the untrained eye as well as the professional artist.
Take a journey on the 'sculpture trail' which will take you through the towns of Oaklands, Urana, Morundah and Boree Creek. These unique sculptures have been made by a local artist and are an impressive part of the quaint little towns in which they call home.
You can spend hours wandering local art galleries that house the work of local artists as well as travelling exhibitions such as the Bald Archy Exhibition. You'll be inspired by the creations and may even choose to purchase one (or more!) of the pieces you find.
As it is nestled on Wiradjuri land, the Corowa region is rich in Indigenous culture. The Aboriginal Canoe Tree located by the Corowa Lagoon is just one of the great story-tellers in the region which explains how local indigenous people created shelters and watercrafts out of the bark of the big red river gums.
If you want just a taste of Howlong’s history, rather than the full trail, take a shorter stroll to the private garden inspired by the distinctive and ancient gardens found in the city of Suzhou, in eastern China. This is a must see during your visit to Howlong.
These experiences will allow you to develop a deeper understanding of what makes this region special and how easy it is to fall in love with each of its quirky features.
