Alberrie Creek - Cities, Towns and Localities
‘Plane Henge’ - Mutonia (artist/scupltor Robin Cooke - Alberrie Creek, South Australia
You cannot miss Alberrie Creek, as you travel the Oodnadatta Track. If you are travelling from Marree, it is about 30 km west, when the first glimpse will be two strange almost cross like structures in the distance. On closer approach, the structures define themselves as aircrafts, standing on their end. Welcome to Mutonia Sculpture Park.

Kombi Gate is the actual gate through the fence into the sculpture park, a classic symbol of outback travel in years gone by.

This unique attraction, stands like a statement, in the harsh arid outback. Created by Robin 'Mutoid' Cooke, a former mechanic that became an artist over 23 years ago through his works.

He came to Alberrie Creek from Victoria after an outback uranium mining protest in 1997 and since then, he's comes north nearly every winter to create a  new work of art.

One of the first is the magnificent ‘Plane Henge’, the crafted work made from a couple of Beechcraft Baron light aircraft, American made light aircraft from Moorabbin Airport, that are bolted upright with their tails wedged into the ground.

This was soon followed by ‘Dream Catcher’, ‘Spinning Car’ and ‘Time Tree’. And as a conscientious conservationist, all the works are created from recycled rubbish.

Once a railway siding on the old Ghan line, Alberrie Creek would have fallen off the map. With the increasingly popular Oodnadatta Track as a tourist drive, and the evocative Mutonia Sculpture Park, Alberrie Creek is now back on the map.
