The Art of William Ricketts

Home Next


The William Ricketts Sanctuary is situated on the Mt Dandenong
Tourist Road, about an hour's drive from Melbourne.
The sanctuary is set in a forest of mountain ash and
features clay figures representing the Australian Aboriginal.

The sculptures were all created
over the lifetime of sculptor William Ricketts,
who died in 1993 at the age of 94.
The garden encompasses fern gullies and waterfalls spread out over 13 hectares (33 acres),
though the sculptures occupy just a small area, so it is an easy walk to see the art
and experience the beauty of this place.
