The Toorak Village Traders Association once again hosted the innovative Toorak Village Sculpture Exhibition, which I had the privilege of opening this year.

At this exhibition sculptures are placed in shop windows and along the footpath. Our shopping strips are the heart and soul of our communities, and they face increased challenges from major shopping centres and online retail. Creating unique experiences for visitors, like the Toorak Village Sculpture Exhibition, is critical to ensuring our shopping strips remain vibrant places that people enjoy. Congratulations to everyone at Toorak Village, including the association members, traders and artists, for another successful exhibition.
