Mandurah and Surrounds WA

2023 Gold Winner: Best Sculpture Park or Trail

The Giants of Mandurah is a free-to-view, outdoor trail of several huge wooden sculptures by Danish artist Thomas Dambo.

 

It has brought thousands of people to Western Australia's Peel region, to discover the unique texture of Mandurah’s First Nations, cultural, natural, and urban settings. In the opening month alone, nearly 50,000 people visited the Giants.

 

The project highlights Mandurah’s globally significant Ramsar-listed wetlands, and unique waterways, bushland and wildlife. The artistic narrative and environmental story sit alongside and are inextricably intertwined with the creation story of Mandjoogoordap, gifted by the region’s Traditional Owners, the Bindjareb Noongar people.


The Giants of Mandurah journey of self-discovery captures the imaginations of the young and young-at-heart, and was brought to life with the aid of non-profit organisation FORM and the City of Mandurah.

Thomas Dambo is the world’s leading recycle artist. He was taught from a young age about the value of recycling, sustainability, and unlimited imagination. And so to share that message and inspire people to get out into nature, Thomas creates larger-than-life sculptures from recycled wood, and places them all over the world.

 

This is the first time his Giants have appeared in Australia though! Thomas has designed this giant experience as a game. So, head on over to the website, plan your trip and get ready to play!

Where? Mandurah, WA’s largest regional city and less than an hour from Perth, is set against a backdrop of magnificent beaches and an estuary twice the size of Sydney Harbour. The sculptures are found in and around the city.

Best viewing times: Daytime. Pop on your comfy walking shoes, a hat and a drink bottle for numerous wondrous walks through nature.
