Gillie and Marc

Centennial Park is a haven for many birds and animals – however recently we were visited by several new ‘species’.

Renowned Australian contemporary artists Gillie and Marc Schattner are regular visitors to the Parklands, and on one of their most recent visits they brought some friends along. Not only did human passers-by stop and take a look, but a few of our feathered friends also took a gander!

However this particular red dog generated some interest from the locals!
