A gigantic long-necked turtle has appeared in the hills of Dookie to promote the SheppARTon Festival on next month

This aerial shot taken over the Dookie paddock is a trial run of a geoglyph — a giant turtle and Yorta Yorta totem — ploughed into a paddock by winemaker Richard Tallis.

The geoglyph will be used during the arts festival and symbolises a creature that carries its home on its back, a nod to the Goulburn Valley’s immigrant communities.
