The property is at the Bayonet Head end of Mercer Road and as you drive towards Lower King Road you will see the entrance at the top of a hill on the left hand side.

A walrus, a castle and a large wooden chainsaw are easy to spot as you drive along.

Opening times are 8am - 6pm daily and people are encouraged to drive in and follow the signs.

There is no official entry fee but as you drive through, you will see a donation box and after checking out the amazing work that has been done, I doubt anyone would leave without making a donation of some kind.

The sculptor is local born Darrel Radcliffe, no relation to Daniel Radcliffe as far as we know but Darrel is obviously a creator of some real life magic from what would otherwise be fairly unremarkable timber.

Darrel once worked with metal but became interested in sculpting wood with a chainsaw.

The sculptures are mainly jarrah, a hard long lasting wood that when worked to a high degree and polished is some of the most beautiful wood you will ever see.

Watch out for the poring bucket, the violin and the grandfather clock. They show just how stunning the wood is when given a very fine finish.

You have to pay attention when driving through the property as there are all sorts of sculptures from large to small.

We rate this a must see attraction in Albany so when you are down that way, take the time to drive through and we are sure you will be just as impressed as we were.
