Gnomesville

I heard about Gnomesville a few times before and thought it will be worthwhile to make a detour on our way further south and I’m glad we did. Gnomesville is located at a big roundabout on Wellington Mill and Ferguson Road. It is well signed and cannot be missed.

Gnomesville

The collection started after they built the big roundabout in early 90’s. A local resident placed the first Gnome on the road side inside a hollow of a large red gum tree. Gnomes then started to appear on the roundabout and were later moved to where they are now as they were frequently vandalised.

Apparently today there are about 7000 gnomes happily living in Gnomesville!

The place is magical and surreal.

The boys (and me!!) were so excited to walk around spotting all the quirky gnomes.

I am sure we missed some because there were so many, but we did spot some really interesting and funny ones….

Everyone is welcome to add to the collection and so we did too.

We made a trip to Bunnings the day before our trip and bought four gnomes for $3.90 each. We signed and dated our gnomes and the boys even added some personal touches to theirs, before placing them under an unoccupied tree. We love the idea that our very own gnome family lives in Gnomesville. We will be back to visit them again soon.

It was well worth the visit. I highly recommend a stopover if travelling south.

Notes and Tips:
-Take insect repellent for mosquitos.
-There are no toilets.
-There are two picnic tables available inside Gnomesville.
-If you decide to place a gnome or a family of gnomes it is advisable to keep it away from the river and stream as it has flooded few times in the past.
