Contact Orchid in a Teacup Sculpture

Oaklands is home to a unique threatened orchid: the Oaklands Diuris. To celebrate and raise awareness of the orchid and improve the streetscape for locals and travellers alike, the Oaklands Country Women's Association commissioned a sculpture of the orchid in a tea cup. The sculpture stands at approximately 1.5 metres tall.

The sculpture was a true community effort, with the concept designed by a local art student, and the local and nearby communities banding together to create the final design and surrounding gardens and benches. The sculpture can be found on the corner of Milthorpe and Coreen Streets.
