- This fascinating sanctuary was created by sculptor William Ricketts. Inspired by his travels in Central Australia where he came into contact with the Pitjantjarra and Arrente people, he started to mould ceramic sculptures in the forests around his home depicting the legends of their dreamtime. Today, 92 sculptures are dotted through the undergrowth of the temperate rainforest, often half-buried in ferns or carved out of the earth itself, almost as if they were natural phenomena themselves. The place has a thought-provoking, almost eerie quality. There is a licensed cafe on the premises.
