The Geelong Bollard DIY Series The Geelong Baywalk Bollards are a series of sculptures located along the Baywalk in Geelong, Australia.
There are more than 100 of these huge painted icons guiding visitors along the foreshore walking/cycling track from Rippleside Park, through Waterfront Geelong to Limeburners Point and the Botanic Gardens. They represent a fascinating and fun chronicle of the city’s past, focusing on some of the unique characters who played a part.
The colourful bollards are the work of Australian artist Jan Mitchell (1940 – 17 March 2008). Jan was commissioned by the City of Greater Geelong to transform old timbers and piles from a city pier, demolished in the 1980s, into remarkable works of art that stop young and old in their tracks. Sadly, Jan is no longer with us but she has left a lasting legacy which will put a smile on just about anyone who comes face to face with these unique and much-loved pieces of public art.
