Information

Twelve bronze sculptures, each mounted on its own natural stone plinth, comprise The Steppes Sculptures. They stand in a bush area, just off the road, 35 km north of Bothwell, almost opposite to the road into the Lagoon of Islands. A short walk through the forest, or a short drive on the road, will bring you to the Steppes Homestead, built in 1863 when sheep grazing was popular in the highlands. Both sights are included in a reserve area.

The sculptures cannot be seen from the road but a normal road sign which announces "Steppes Sculptures" point to the short gravel road that leads to a car parking area. A short walk will bring you to the sculptures, which depict Australian wild life. They are a gift from sculptor Stephen Walker, and are "dedicated to those who share in the love and care of the Highlands of Tasmania, from the past to the future." Walker also created the bronze sculptures on the Hobart waterfront, and the whale at Cockle Creek.
