The much-loved sculpture of a kangaroo and joey, on display at the 30th anniversary of Floriade last year, has found a new home.

The sculpture, titled Stopping to Smell the Flowers, by artist Jimmy Rix has been permanently installed in the new play space in Throsby.

The award winning park has been officially named ‘Joey Park’ in recognition of the new artwork’s arrival.

The artwork is located on Bettong Avenue, Throsby in Joey Park.
