To mark the 150th anniversary of The Royal Children’s Hospital (RCH) Melbourne, the RCH Foundation is bringing colour and creativity to the streets of Melbourne and Geelong with a spectacular public art trail.

Commencing on 20 Jan, Me and UooUoo (pronounced you-you) will combine Victoria’s renowned passion for the arts and culture with a dash of outdoor adventure, encouraging communities to reconnect with their cities, and be active by visiting one hundred unique art sculptures.

Each UooUoo – individually designed by an Australian artist and sponsored by a Victorian business – will find a home in laneways, streets, parks and public spaces, forming walking trails throughout Melbourne and Geelong. When the art trail finishes, the sculptures will then be auctioned to raise funds for the RCH.

There will be 10 UooUoo's in Geelong. Locations are:

  • Barwon Water Forecourt
  • Federal Mills
  • Geelong Railway Station
  • Carousel
  • Customs Park / Sailor's Rest
  • Little Malop Street (corner of Moorabool Street)
  • Geelong Quay
  • Geelong Botanic Gardens
  • Eastern Beach
  • City Hall (Gheringhap Street)

One of the UooUoo's to be showcased in Geelong is called 'Geelong My Home' by Lauren McDonnell. It celebrates Geelong’s iconic attractions, packed full of colour and references to the community feel of the region with an abstract style. On this UooUoo you can explore the beach, waterfront and You Yangs Regional Park. 

Seven more amazing UooUoo's will be placed in Geelong too - with equally inspiring stories.
