Tanunda Sculpture Park

The historic town Tanunda has a population of about 3,500. The town is located in the centre of the wine producing district Barossa Valley located approx. 70 kilometres north-east of Adelaide in South Australia. Established in 1843 by German settlers fleeing religious persecution of Lutherans, the town was originally named Langmeil. Old Lutheran churches remain magnificent reminders of this history.

The sculpture park on Mengler Hill provides panoramic views over the Barossa valley and Tanunda. The Barossa Wine and Visitor Centre is located in the main street of Tanunda. A number of cooperages in town are open to the public and the old Post Office is now home to a heritage museum with historical displays of the area. The area has an abundance of wineries, restaurants and cafes attracting overseas and local tourists.

More About Australia

There are no kangaroos in Austria. We're talking about Australia, the world's smallest continent. That being cleared up, let's dive right in! Australia is a sovereign state under the Commonwealth of Nations, which is in turn overseen by Queen Elizabeth the Second, by the Grace of God, Queen of Australia and Her other Realms and Territories, Head of the Commonwealth. The continent was first sighted and charted by the Dutch in 1606. Captain James Cook of Britain came along in the next century to claim it for Britain and name it "New South Wales." Shortly thereafter it was declared to be a penal colony full of nothing but criminals and convicts, giving it the crap reputation you may have heard at your last cocktail party. This rumor ignores 40,000 years of pre-European human history, especially the Aboriginal concept of Dreamtime, an interesting explanation of physical and spiritual reality. The two biggest cities in Australia are Sydney and Melbourne. Sydney is more for business, Melbourne for arts. But that's painting in very broad strokes. Take a whirl around the panoramas to see for yourself! Text by Steve Smith.
