Unique and Quirky Garden Art at Roseworthy

Garden treasures galore at Outback Rustic Garden Art

In the little town of Roseworthy, between the pub and the servo, sits Outback Rustic Garden Art, a jam-packed store full of garden treasures.

Opening in 2021 after a tumultuous time as the world was still grappling with the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic, there was one thing owner Mark Calbert was certain – pandemic or not, gardening, art, sculptures, and home decoration was as popular as ever.

Handpicking the designs, Mark has amassed a huge range of garden art and you’d be hard-pressed not to find something you like. “Anything that moves, spins or twirls walks out of the store”, Mark said, with windmills and spinners being top sellers.


Country hospitality at its best

Entering the shop, Mark greets his customers with a trademark smile and cheery country hospitality. With the gift of the gab and an impressive career background in sales, Mark gave up his big wig job for a quieter lifestyle, running his own business, and being his own boss.

Once a city lad, Mark’s heart has always laid in rural communities and he’s fully aware of how country towns tick. With a generous and helpful nature he freely donates items for raffles, schools or community events, with a motto of “what goes around, comes around”.

A country town with the buzz of urban sprawl, Roseworthy is on the cusp of a boom with developments and infrastructure beginning on the fertile soil of the inner Mid-North town. Just shy of 8 km from Gawler, Roseworthy is well known for its University Campus, internationally renowned for excellence in dryland agriculture and animal production. The development at Roseworthy will include an activity centre with approximately 8000m2 of retail space and a new Trinity College campus. The St Yves Estate surrounding the centre will house more than 2000 residents and include a full-size football field.

There’s no doubt the expansion of the town and its facilities is great news for local businesses and it certainly won’t dampen the experience customers feel popping into see Mark and his quirky, unique wares to add some pizzaz to a lackluster yard or find the perfect gift for garden lovers.


From wall hangings, garden stakes, intricate sculptures, knickknacks, pot stands, windmills, water features, cast iron outdoor furniture and a whole heap more, Mark strives to provide a large range of items, exclaiming “if I haven’t got it, I’ll find it for you”. He might even be able to make it for you too. Wearing the hat of ‘chief designer’ Mark enlists the help of a welding friend to create some garden art of his own. For lovers of dioramas, the developing range of interesting miniatures carefully constructed in the back room might be the perfect last-minute Christmas gift.

Open from Wednesday to Sunday, you can also find Outback Rustic Garden Art at Saddleworth Monthly Markets. Delivery options are available too.
