Public Art in Deloraine

Deloraine is a small rural town in Tasmania that lies on the banks of the Meander River. The town is virtually 50km from both Launceston to the west and Devonport to the south. It was named after a character from Sir Walter Scott’s poem The Lay of the Last Minstrel. Deloraine is known for producing poppies, potatoes, onions, and ginseng. Their public art is quite quirky and whimsical. One piece, in particular, Mountain Man/Mountain Man caused quite the controversy.
