The Coonawarra Park


Details
The Coonawarra Centenary Sculpture in the town's park commemorates the beginnings of the fruit colony. One section of the park is known as the sculpture park because in 1991 a sculpture made from red gum and limestone called the Terra Rossa Tree Wall was unveiled along with three bronze busts. The first bust is of John Riddoch the founder of Coonawarra. The second bust is of David Wynn the revitalizer of Coonawarra and the third is of Bill Redman the sustainer of Coonawarra. On the wall of the public toilets a map of the wineries has been placed along with the history of Coonawarra and a map of the original fruit blocks.
