'Compass' Sculptural Installation on Tallis Hill


'Compass' is a bamboo sculpture in the shape of a shelter, sitting on the hill behind Tallis Wine.

View from afar or up close and personal, this interesting installation consists of 4 sections pointing to the four corners of the globe, the sculpture represents the diversity of cultures who have made the Goulburn Valley their home. 

Compass is surrounded in a labyrinth and capped with a sound sculpture to capture the call of the prevailing winds to a meditative sanctuary. Visitors are encouraged pick up a pebble on their journey to the site and place it along the edges of the labyrinth to celebrate the journey of our cohesive culture and leave a lasting impression of the sculpture after it has gone.

The Compass sculpture is situated on the spectacular Rock Correa Interpretive walking track at Tallis Wine. The track is rocky in places and walkers are advised to watch their step, wear sturdy footwear, keep eyes peeled for kangaroos and watch out for snakes in warmer months. Water, hat, long pants and sunscreen recommended. The walk takes approximately 1 hour return.

Track opening hours are Tuesday to Thursday 10am to 2pm & Friday to Sunday 11am to 4pm. Closed Mondays.
