Utes in the paddock

30km our from Parkes and along 3km of very dusty dirt road and you will see an amazing outdoor art gallery with a difference.

Just a few of the collection

Holden utes have been collected and painted up displaying various aspects of our Aussie culture. Really there is not much to say about this place. It is really something you have to see for yourselves.


Each of the utes have a sign giving you more information as to the artist's inspiration
All I can do is show you numerous photos of the ones that appealed to me. I love the human-ness of Dame Edna having to do what we all have to do - that is go to the toilet!





All that is left to say is that you've gotta go and see this for yourself!

  1. It takes inspiration to recreate things that have outlasted their original use. They bring a sense of Childish delight in their second life.
    Be Safe and Enjoy!

    It's about time.

    1. Sadly though the local council is not doing anything to preserve the art on the cars and so age in it's various forms are taking its toll.

  2. isn't it amazing what you find when travelling and to think that these people do these things - just because !
    It seems that many are off the beaten track - so how on earth would many people see or hear about them

    1. It started as an art competition and probably just because there isn't a lot to look at out there, people will go a long way to see something different!!!
