How a regional contemporary public art initiative is helping with bushfire recovery – Saturday Breakfast

Did you know that the scenic snowy valleys of NSW are now home to a world-class sculpture trail?

25 sculptures are part of a 100km trail along the Snowy Valleys Way, which crosses an area devastated by the 2019/2020 bushfires.

With charming towns like Adelong, Batlow, Tumbarumba and Tooma home to all these new sculptures, maybe this is your excuse to get out of town?

Portland sculptor Harrie Fasher created ‘The Last Charge’ for Adelong and she says the work is dedicated to the Light Horse during the Battle of Beersheba on October 31, 1917.

Angela Pearce is a graphic designer who moved to Adelong 20 years ago after marrying a local cattle rancher.

ABC Canberra Adrienne Francis spoke to Angela and Harrie about how the tourism generated by the collaborative project is helping propel regional fire recovery.
