Formerly the home of a sculptor and an art gallery in the heart of nature, visitors could appreciate various sculptures depicting the aboriginal people in a lush forest setting. The sculptures and the forest seem to be embodied as one that the entire walk felt surreal and a tad haunting at times.

There are a total of 92 clay sculptures which highlighted the essence of the Aboriginal culture and spirituality. This is a good stop to explore and admire the Dandenongs, especially after a train ride on the Puffy Billy.

There is no entry fee to the William Rickett’s Sanctuary, which is best accessed via driving.
