Great View of the Barossa Valley from Mengler Hill Lookout and Sculpture Park R
Jun. 2021
Great vista of the Barossa Valley below - The Sculpture Park could be more informative with a description next to each of them - describing what they depict and the thoughts behind them. There is a plaque at the beginning of the park which outlines some of them - but most are very abstract.

Drive a short way out to the east of Tanunda for a great panoramic view across the Barossa Valley (morning is best, with sun behind you) and surrounded by some amazing mega sculptures.

Not worth the drive

Just a lookout without too much to see. As there were burn offs occurring in the area very hazy. Sculpture was odd

Ideal to view the Barossa valley from up high and to inspect the sculptures.

Ideal to view the Barossa valley from up high and to inspect the sculptures. It would help to have an information plaque before each that gives the sculptor's name and sculpture title.

Rock Sculptures On A Hill

The sculptures were interesting and the scenery great but this was not well presented or maintained as oif someone had a good idea and forgot about it. Definitely worth a vist on a nice sunny day for the view (and the sculptures) .

Probably better to come back in winter. Nothing too flash, and not the best views, unless you like flat terrain. Sculptures are interesting

A little disappointing
Jul. 2020
Below the lookout there is an open space with a number of stone sculptures. There is a variety of shapes here, but I must say the display would have been far more interesting if there had been some explanations. What was the artist trying to say? What was the name of this sculpture? Who was the artist? A little disappointing overall.

Sculptures on the hillside
Jan. 2020
Located below the lookout are a series of sculptures by local and international artists. Take a stroll along the trail to view the various creations, some made of marble, others, granite. Most are the result of an International Sculpture Symposium held on Mengler's Hill in 2008. Apparently it's contemporary art, I recognised the carving of the eagle's (?) head and the lady lying on the rock. What do these or any of the other sculptures represent?. It would help to have an inscribed plaque before each that gives the sculptor's name and sculpture title. I don't understand simplistic abstract pieces or what they symbolise. Perhaps I lack imagination!!

Drive up to the high point to the view as well as the sculptures. Amazing works and the children there seemed to love running around them and playing.

Unique and surprising

Obviously a great view, but the sculptures were really impressive. great placement of each piece. Perhaps a bit more information but well worth the visit. highly recommended.
