Others said to go here so took the kids. They didn't think much of it and neither did I. A bit of local quirky history but wouldn't bother going back next time.

great art work, Arno very creative, its sad to see his passion neglected, perhaps the council could take it over and charge a fee to maintain, or stat a voluntary crew to maintain

This wall has almost everything conceivable added to it! Located behind the North Gregory Hotel by walking down the lane beside the outdoor theatre.

It takes a while to walk around and find of the things concreted into this wall. Everything including mowers, bikes, and even toilets. Arno had a lot of time on his hands and a lot of patience

Loved this quirky wall, amazing how some of the 'junk' has been displayed. The longer you look, the more you find. A must see in Winton!

I think that he had a lot of time on his hands! Take a few minutes to see it. There is some interesting items in the wall, but mostly junk.

Arno never accepted that he was mad, only eccentric, and that pretty well sums up this quirky piece of local history.

Arno was an opal miner with a penchant for reusing anything still useful and he didn’t waste an opportunity to proclaim his theory of life to all in Winton.

So he built a wall, in fact, several walls.

It is almost impossible to calculate how many bags of concrete he saved through this frugal use of “other” building materials, but my back-of-the-hand estimate is that he almost certainly was the cause of the great concrete glut of 1973.

Worth visiting - it’s great fun!

It is just something that is unusual. I liked all the things he had at the top of the wall.... good on him ... it was great to visit.

Worth a look, just for it's historical factor. There is quite some interesting pieces in there and bigger then I thought.

Worth the visit, easy to get to and a simple walk. We spent about 15 minutes walking past the hard work that Arno put into this unique wall. A real mixture of memories from sewing machine Lister pumps, hubcaps and motor bikes. I think it seems quirky to see all these items in the wall.
