Sculpture at Montalto

Sculpture is an integral part of life at Montalto and a highlight of any visit to the estate. Our Sculpture Trail winds its way through the property and our beautiful natural gallery provides diverse settings for our pieces. You might find monumental works sited in open spaces through to more intimate pieces amongst the wetlands and vines.

Everywhen Artspace

A cracking new gallery has opened in Flinders run by highly regarded art writers, curators and gallerists, Susan McCulloch and Emily McCulloch Childs. The big, bright and architectural space replaces the McCullochs home gallery Whistlewood as their exhibition venue.

Big Blue Backyard

Words truly can’t describe Big Beautiful Backyard but if you’re after a laid back escape where you can hole up and do exactly as you please  – think Henry Miller - then follow this through. A true couples only retreat, BBB is nestled between the sand dunes and tea trees of St Andrews Beach and its magnificent rugged ocean.

Check out our top two walks!

Going for walk has all the benefits you might think it would. It’s a great way to improve or maintain your overall health - just 30 minutes every day can increase cardiovascular fitness, strengthen bones, reduce excess body fat, and boost muscle power and endurance. But walking is also good for the soul – breathing in fresh air, absorbing the world around you, and taking time out just for you. It’s low impact, it requires no equipment other than a good pair of walking shoes, it can be done at any time of day and you can walk at your own pace. And it’s free!

McClelland Gallery + Sculpture Park

There’s a wonderland in Langwarrin (just outside Frankston) that’s larger than life - with over 100 sculptures, 16 hectares of native bushland and landscaped gardens, art gallery and licensed café and to top it off… it’s free. Some of you will know it as McClelland Sculpture Park + Gallery – a truly a world class experience where so much incredible art is blended with nature. We love it here because you’re encouraged to walk the grounds and as you do so you stumble across incredible works of art and nature.

Pt Leo Estate

If you’re wondering where we go to enjoy some of the finest food, artistic sculptures and uninterrupted views on the Mornington Peninsula it’s Pt. Leo Estate. With three dining choices including Laura (a more refined dining experience offering a set menu that tells a local seasonal harvest story), Pt. Leo Restaurant (a modern restaurant with a large wood fired oven that is the heart of its food offering) and the Wine Terrace (the simple things like a glass of wine and charcuterie plate is all that matters).
