Enter our "Win a Wallaby" draw and you could be in with the chance to own your very own piece of the Wallabies Gone Wild trail and take home a small wallaby. Choose to have one of our selected artists paint your wallaby for you or you can paint it yourself.
Limited draw of 2,000 tickets at £10 each

Tickets available at Hospice reception and Hospice shops island-wide.
Since we launched Wallabies Gone Wild, the wallabies and their artwork have gained thousands, of admirers and we’ve lost count of the number of times that we’ve been asked where people can get their hands on a wallaby of their own.
A small blank wallaby is up for grabs in this prize draw, and the lucky winner will be able to choose to take home the wallaby as a plain white, blank canvas and apply their own creative design, or they can opt for a custom design from several selected artists who have designed and painted the large wallabies for the art trail.
This really is an exclusive prize which the winner can then make truly unique and personal to them, not to mention that it’s the ultimate souvenir of the summer our colourful wallabies took over the Isle of Man.
All proceeds from the competition will go to Hospice Isle of Man to help us support people in our community to live well, their way, until the end of life.
Terms & Conditions apply.
Our beautifully designed wallaby sculptures have taken the Isle of Man by storm this summer and have won the hearts of thousands of fans, from the island and further afield.
The island-wide art trail has been arranged by Hospice Isle of Man in association with Wild in Art, which is a global leader in mass participation public art events.
If you haven't managed to visit every wallaby before this time, the farewell weekend is your one final chance to see them all together.
The event will bring together the 26 large wallabies, which were created by both local and international artists, along with the 38 small sculptures that were designed by schools and community groups. As our large wallabies go up for auction on 26th September to raise funds for Hospice Isle of Man, the Farewell Weekend also presents the perfect opportunity for potential bidders to preview the wallabies.
With two generous time slots per day, people will be able to take time to have a detailed look at the sculptures and their art work, and there’ll be a chance to meet some of the artists whose designs feature on the trail.
The Farewell Weekend is being held at the picturesque Ballannette Country Park on Ballamenagh Road in Baldrine.
Our big wallaby farewell promises to be a great event with things to do for all the family, including pop-up food outlets, games and craft stalls.
It’s also a last-minute opportunity to get your hands on our wallaby merchandise and buy tickets for our prize draw to win a small wallaby sculpture, which the winner can choose to have designed by one of our selected trail artists or decorate themselves.
If you would like any more information, please contact the Wallabies Gone Wild team on 07624 452413.
This is your chance to own your very own piece of the trail as we auction off our large wallabies.
Join us for the evening on Thursday 26th September at the Villa Marina, Douglas to have the opportunity to bid on one of our beautifully designed large wallabies.
