The Tin Horse Highway near Kulin is a 15km open-air gallery that will amuse young and old and makes for a great road trip to Wave Rock.

Along the 15km stretch of road you’ll be entertained by an array of highly creative and amusing sculptures.  The imaginative sculptures of horses and other farm life are real works of art. They’re all made from metal scraps and other bits and bobs found around the farms.

A local farmer started the gallery as a quirky way to promote the Kulin Bush Races. Fellow farmers took up the challenge to keep adding new and amusing sculptures to the growing gallery along the highway.

New sculptures are still added to the highway. So even if you’ve travelled along this quirky stretch of road before, you never know what you might find on your next visit.
