The second element of the Rosebud Gateway Sculpture was installed along Point Nepean Rd in December and marks the completion of Mornington Peninsula Shire Council’s Destination Rosebud project. The Gateway sculptures, comprising two elements – Sails and Helix Wave, by artists Matthew Harding and Benjamin Storch – mark the western and eastern entrances to the Rosebud township and are created from reclaimed timbers from the Rosebud pier refurbishment. Both sculptures reference the origins of the Rosebud name, which came from the cargo vessel The Rosebud that washed over sandbanks on to the beach in 1855. The salvaged timbers from the hull were used by local fishermen for cottage construction.

The Rosebud Gateway Sculpture project took about 18 months from the initial open invitation for artists’ submissions to the shortlist of five artists selected and successful applicants chosen by the Gateway Assessment Panel to off-site fabrication and installation. LED lighting will be installed this month to highlight these amazing works that represent the township’s history moving into the future.

The Destination Rosebud initiative has reinvigorated this family-friendly seaside town and holidaymakers’ haven. New streetscape works, including bin replacement, new footpaths, seating and street trees, Rosebud Pde beach access and event infrastructure, new footpaths, aesthetic upgrades and the Rosebud Bowls Club laneway beach access and footpath lighting, create a sense of consistency while beautifying this now not so tiny town. The Rosebud foreshore play space inspired by Mornington Peninsula’s unique geography encourages all ages and abilities to explore and play, while the Jetty Rd forecourt featuring a pedestrian path, new toilet blocks, picnic facilities, drink fountains and bins, a beach shower, event infrastructure (water and power) and all-abilities beach access has been a winner with residents and visitors alike. The once neglected Village Green Soundshell has been restored to close to original condition, while new lighting has been installed at five locations along the foreshore and within the Rosebud commercial zone, including the foreshore, skate park, Sea Scout hall, bowls club, Village Green and Cypress Passage laneway and carpark. Future plans include streetscape rejuvenation works within the Rosebud Village commercial zone.

Originally known as Banksia Point in the early 1850s, Rosebud was once a small fishing community finding its feet. Times have changed. Visit today to see how.
