Circular Head is a region of windswept headlands, dense forests and swampy plains. It is known for its thriving farming and fishing industries, and more recently for it’s sustainable energy generating wind turbines. Visitors to the district pass through a narrow passage cut into the Sisters Hills, where they are welcomed by the public artwork – a metal silhouette of the landscape displayed on the rocky hillside. This artwork graphically depicts many of the key symbols that help shape Circular Head’s unique identity.
