The Sea Bird Sculpture Trail Project would be Southern Victoria’s premier Seabird educational facility where locals and visitors will be captivated by art and natural heritage with the determined aim of preserving the present for the future.
It would be a realistic representation of 20 large bronze sea bird sculptures, spaced at regular intervals. Connecting southern CBD to the Foreshore Promenade via Cannon Hill and Lake Pertobe. Providing an informative walk or bike ride along existing paths to be enjoyed at any time by locals and tourists alike.
