Story Book Street

Most street sculpture is huge , awkward
and at odds with the environment in
which it sits, often raising eyebrows
..and not in a good way!

These small but striking little sculptures
perched beside the harbour in picturesque
Lavender Bay, Sydney, are so refreshing,
because they are like tiny little secrets.
They surprise you as you pass and
tickle you with their charm.
They also refer to Australian Pop
The Magic Pudding, Ginger Meggs and
Blinky Bill the koala are all characters from
classic Australian storybooks and comic strips.
If you are in Sydney, go down to
Luna Park and do the walk around the harbour,
and remember to keep an eye out for these guys!
