the rusty acre
Allan and Andrea have been creating our garden of sculptures since 1993. We started with a bare paddock . Today it is an established garden with paths and ponds and full of art at every turn. Allan O’Loughlin is a sculptor of steel. He has created the most amazing collection of his sculptures /art you’ll see in a garden setting. It is unique,quirky and entertaining. There are sitting areas throughout, a grand table under a massive steel chandelier, all created by Allan. When you visit you are welcome to bring a picnic and relax in the shelter of our garden. “The Rusty Acre” has been developed mainly due to my passion for home decor and restyling furniture , I just like nice things. I am a registered nurse and have a busy job in a operating theatre, The Rusty Acre gives me that chance to free my spirit and to express to myself. My shop is full of beautiful home items, soaps, candles, jewelry, french furniture and personally collected brocante items. I love the feeling you have when you buy something special and it gives you that nice feeling inside every time you look / smell or touch it. I hope to offer that to my customers when they visit The Rusty Acre.
