Interpretive sculpture, Gumgali Track, Korora Lookout

Interpretive sculpture forms part of the visitor experience along the Gumgali Track. Large sculptural elements, created by local sculptor John van der Kolk, are dotted along the walk reassuring visitors they are on the right path. They have been crafted from locally grown Brushbox, Tallowwood and Ironbark timbers supplied by Coffs Harbour Hardwoods.

Diorama interpretive sculpture

The first sculpture uses timber and metal to tell the story of Gumgali, showing the whole coastline, Gumgali the goanna and the hunters. Weighing in at half a tonne, the three-metre tall sculpture was crafted from local Brushbox timber.

Postcard sculpture

The second two-metres tall postcards sculpture has three small windows to create perfectly framed vistas of the coastline at different eye levels. The Ironbark piece is a unique way for the Instagram generation to instantly frame and share their Gumgali experience with the world.

Seating

Positioned halfway along the 400m walking track, is a seat crafted from local Tallowwood, providing a picturesque rest stop on the way to the lookout.
