Spannerman Boort Day Tour
12th May 2021
Cost $ 75.00
We will have morning tea on arrival at the famous John Piccoli – the Spannerman.
Followed by a guided tour of the gardens. The two-acre garden has many large sculptures.
John has made from old spanners placed amongst the trees and garden beds.
You will be amazed both by this man who didn’t start his sculptures until he was retired and the sculptures themselves are amazing.
We will move onto Little Lake Boort for a picnic box lunch supplied by local caterer Jeanette Wagner (a note that both pubs have closed due to Covid we are hoping they may be back and operating soon) The Lake has many sculptures around it and in the park areas.
And if weather is not suitable an enclosed venue will be provided. And drive past the sculptures.
In the afternoon we head to the new establishment of Simply Tomatoes that produce green tomato products for retail & food service. They grow, pick, manufacture and package on their family farm. They also own Aussie Wool Quilts in Boort. Visitors will see how they make the pillows, quilts and under blanket onsite.
A driving town tour of Boort viewing the historic courthouse, the medical
precinct and the various sculptures around Little Lake Boort.
