King's Floor

Mount Gambier and the surrounding region was one of the first sites for forestry in South Australia, and indeed all of Australia. It is a legacy that began over a hundred years ago and continues to this day. 

To celebrate this central industry for the Southeast of South Australia, and to promote the beauty of wood as a material, the Forestry SA Wood Sculpture Prize was established in 2004. Sponsored by Forestry SA, City of Mount Gambier and the Hoo Hoo Club, the prize ran until 2012, with the winners becoming part of the Gallery’s collection. 

Drawn from the Riddoch’s collection, this exhibition Plentiful showcases the versatility and beauty of wood in many forms.
