Koondrook Barham Redgum Statue River Walk - Koondrook

Overview

Description

The Redgum Statue walk meanders along the banks of the Murray River through both the towns of Koondrook and Barham. The walk takes in the many Redgum statues which have been carved by Kevin Guilders and his chainsaw.

The statues depict the pioneer men and women of the district along with the iconic wildlife of the area. A brochure accompanies the walk and includes a guided map and information on each statue. You can pick up a brochure at the many food and retail businesses in towns across the shire.

The very first statue created was of Alexander "Sandy" Arbuthnot 1850- 1914, aged 64 years. Mr Alexander Arbuthnot was the founder of the Arbuthnot Sawmill in the late 1800's. Arbuthnot Sawmill continues to operate on the original sawmill site.
