Elgee Park, located at Merricks North on Victoria's Mornington Peninsula, is renowned for its Quarter Horse Stud and the historic Elgee Park Winery. The five hectares of special varieties probably represent the earliest surviving vineyard in this distinctive wine-growing area. However, over the past 30 years, Baillieu Myer and his family have added yet another dimension to the property by collecting more than forty large-scale outdoor works by sculptors such as Clement Meadmore, Ron Robertson-Swann, Robert Klippel, Inge King, Lenton Parr, Geoffrey Bartlett, Bruce Armstrong, David Wilson and many others. Author Ken Scarlett has arranged the sculptures in this book according to where they are located if undertaking a series of separate walks around the farm. The sculptures, their landscape settings, daily activities and the beautiful gardens of Elgee Park are the subjects of Mark Chew's dramatic photographs taken over all four seasons of the year. The expanded second edition includes an updated text and all the sculptures commissioned since the first edition published in 2004.
