“The Australian Farmer” Granite Sculpture

In 1992 the Wudinna & District community decided it was time to recognise their history, community spirit and belief in rural Australia through a work of art.

In the following 17 years the project was driven by the Wudinna & Districts Directions
Group and was supported by many volunteers who willingly gave their time and talents. Amazing contributions were made by the Croatian Community Australia wide and Corporate Companies who without natural links to the community, believed in the “Australian Farmer”.

Artist Marijan Bekic spent time gaining a feel for the region and the local people and produced the concept which he titled “Australian Farmer”. Many years passed until the committee made a pivotal decision to proceed in 2007.

With only 30% of the project funds in hand, a belief in Marijan’s commitment and faith in the community, the Wudinna township are now the custodians of this masterpiece.

“Australian Farmer” celebrates the spirit of Australian farming communities from pioneering days to the challenges of rural living today. It is a reflection of life, spirit and soul of the farming community.
