Deloraine is a pretty riverside town set in the foothills of the Great Western Tiers mountain range, with access to Cradle Mountain and the Central Highlands.
The main street is wide with a range of cafes and craft shops. A craft fair takes place in early November when the population of two thousand swells to over thirty thousand. Several of the cafés open out to balconies at the back, overlooking the mountains.
These modern sculptures set along both sides of the main street are a contrast to the Georgian and Victorian buildings. Small but set on poles about one metre high, they have been created by local artists and represent aspects or groups within the community of the town.
