Wallabies take over the Island

Hospice Isle of Man launches new project

The Island's infamous wallabies have inspired a new project from Hospice Isle of Man.

'Wallabies Gone Wild' has seen the creation of 64 fibreglass models of them.

The initiative is not only a fundraiser for Hospice, but a way to encourage people to explore the Island.

Spotters can use the trail’s app to locate and ‘unlock’ the 64 sculptures.

The Isle of Man Arts Council sponsored three wallabies, which are situated in Port Erin, Castletown and on North Quay, Douglas.

It commissioned local artists Anna Clucas, Eve Adams, and Debra Tracey to paint their own designs on the new fibreglass landmarks.

Jane Corkill is arts development manager for the Isle of Man Arts Council:
