Mcalister: Where To Go / Sightseeing

Willowtree Sculpture Garden


Nature is the superb backdrop in this sanctuary of creativity for sculptors to display their creative talent and artists to discover or expand their creativity.

The Sculpture Garden is open to the public to enjoy an art and garden experience every third Saturday of the month coinciding with the Laggan Markets or by appointment.

They offer opportunities for creative exploration through their Art Exhibitions and Art Workshops as a community of Artists and Artisans. All exhibition sculptures are available for sale. A meandering sculpture path invites visitors to experience the peacefulness and grandeur of the established trees.

Their Retreat packages assist you to take time out in Nature to be still, to unwind and relax or understand your life transitions in a nurturing and supportive environment.

'Music at Sunset Events' allows you to connect and celebrate in nature with friends and family.

Their Garden is a unique space to create your own special event to celebrate your relationship or a special occasion.

Anna and Rachael offer you a special seat around their extended table, with fresh produce from the garden or locally produced food to nourish your body and your mind during the workshops and retreats.

Crookwell Wind Farm


The Crookwell Wind Farm is located five minutes drive from the heart of Crookwell township. The wind farm consists of eight wind turbines, and was the first grid connected wind farm in Australia when built by Pacific Power in 1998. They are only 45 metres high. Improvements in technology means the newer turbines are 145 metres high, making these look very small.

Stop at the viewing area where the information boards will tell you more about this remarkable example of renewable energy

Crookwell Wind Farm currently supplies electricity to Country Energy's Green Power customers. If you look 10 kilometres further ahead into the valley, you will see more turbines which are over 175 metres high, in comparison to the Crookwell Wind Farm turbine's height of 45 metres.

A Horticultural Society has also been formed by another group and became incorporated. The name changed to the AP and H Society in 1902.
