Farm Art in the Bush, or F.art in the Bush, is an event held at Wirraminna Environmental Education Centre. The event attracts dozens of local and interstate artists and hundreds of visitors, travelling long distances to attend and enjoy the displays. The art pieces are displayed amongst the spectacular natural scenery on the banks of the Wirraminna billabong.
Farm art works are sculptures made from recycled materials and pieces that can be found lying around on the farm. You may see a dog made of old car parts or a pig shaped mailbox. Admire the art works then spend some time in the unique wetlands that make up Wirraminna.
The environmental education centre provides opportunities for discovery and learning about the natural environment, the ecology of the local woodlands and the beauty of our native plants. Extensive signage throughout the centre provides visitors with information on landcare, native plants, wetlands and wildlife habitat.
