Australian Galleries Sculpture Park - Porcupine Ridge, has been building over the last three years. What started casually with a few pieces of sculpture is emerging as a serious Sculpture Park and something unique in Australia's commercial gallery art world.

Set over 10 acres, less than 10 kilometers from Daylesford in Central Victoria, Australian Galleries Sculpture Park has over 100 large scale outdoor sculptures, all of which are for sale. Sculptures are coming from all over the country and it has attracted 5 major purchases to date.

Currently open by appointment only.


Sculpture can be seen every day on street corners and in public squares, causing much debate on its individual merits or the value and engagement of sculpture in general, that’s the beauty of art – it’s made to make us take notice and promotes discussion.

When I started at Australian Galleries in 1966 one of the very first clients I was involved with purchased a rather good Arthur Boyd, quite a thrill for me, an older client buying something from a very young art dealer. I suggested after the purchase that this client should take a look at some sculpture which was followed by the comment, “No thanks, I’d rather stick with Art”. 50 years on this comment seems comical and we have a very lively interest and market in sculpture.

There’s no denying that sculpture presents interesting challenges and an exhibition of 20 sculptures can mostly be more complicated than an exhibition of 20 paintings. The revered sculptor Inge King often made this remark to me when installing her exhibitions and then we’d look at each other and laugh because it’s just the way it is.

There’s no doubt that Australia loves its sculptors and private collectors are becoming increasingly more interested year by year. There are specific sculpture collections, sculpture parks and sculpture competitions which are very professionally handled and enjoyed by an increasing viewing public.

Australian Galleries has long been a champion of sculpture, the original gallery in Melbourne still creaks from a two tonne marble sculpture shown 20 years ago, and at present 33 of the artists we represent work in the medium of sculpture.
