While in Loxton, explore the public art around town.  The Sculpture Park is made of 16 historic Aleppo Pine trees shaped and carved into native animals, flora and fauna by Riverland artist Tim Baulderstone.  Or the more modern Counterbalance which was commissioned for Loxton’s Centenary in 2007, depicting balance between opposing forces and symbolising the strength of human spirit in the face of isolation, droughts, war and prejudice.
