The now-famous Island wallaby sculptures will be on display this weekend for the final time before they go to auction.

A special farewell event for the brightly-coloured creatures is being held at Ballanette Country Park in Baldrine from today until Sunday ahead of them going under the hammer on Thursday next week (September 26) at the Villa Marina in Douglas.

The exuberant creations went down a storm across the Island this summer and were part of the Wallabies Gone Wild Trail from Hospice Isle of Man which enoucraged Manx people to spend time with each other and enjoy the outdoors.

Tickets to see them are £6 for adults and £4 for children, and time slots to see them will be between 11am and 2pm, then again from 3pm until 6pm.

More details about the family-friendly events which will also be taking place are available on the Wallabies Gone Wild Facebook page.
