Willinga Park

Willinga Park is located in Bawley Point, a small coastal community in the state of New South Wales. The centre recently won two prestigious ACT Architecture Awards for interior and public architecture from the Australian Institute of Architects recently.

According to its web site, Willinga Park and its breeding program is dedicated to the unique Australian Stock Horse breed: “Our horses are a collection of what we consider to be some of the best in the breed. We have carefully selected horses for their conformation and ability…. Today we are introducing the best in Quarter Horses to the mix, including the successful Acres Destiny and Mabo out of well-known Docs Freckles Oak. This fusion has been designed to produce a horse that has a good temperament, is a willing team mate and one that has innate skills to work cattle. Our breeding program aims to develop a horse that the owner can get the best out of for both leisure and performance.”

Billionaire owner Terry Snow has called the architectural awards a recognition of the unique design of Willinga Park. “Every day, as I walk or ride through Willinga Park, I take my hat off to the designers, builders, landscapers and gardeners who have combined to produce such a magnificent result. They all deserve awards,” Mr Snow said. He predicts the attention will attract more visitors to the area’s Dressage by the Sea festival in September.
