Utes in the Paddock, a Quirky Display…

Travellers to the town of Condobolin in the Central West of New South Wales are greeted with an unusual display of old Holden Utes.

The project was the brainchild of a local landowner after seeing a similar display on a trip to the United States. 

Residents from the area donated Utes and many talented and well-known artists brought them to life with some unique and quirky artwork.

As they say, old Holden’s never die…!

About us…

We love the colours of the Australian Outback, the red earth touching a blue sky on a faraway horizon; and the fabulous coastline of our sunburnt country, where a golden sandy beach is washed over by a warm turquoise blue sea…

A few years ago we graduated from work and re-entered the classroom of life where an education is guaranteed and all that is needed is an open mind.

Cheers, Baz & Janet

    Those are great photos! I wish I could remember where in the U.S. the inspiring display is located.

    I will have to give Vegemite a try, if I can find it here. 🙂

        Walmart is listed as having it, and looks like Amazon.com carries it too. OK! I’ll order up a jar and report back. 🙂
