We still have two out of three gnomes surviving
watching over us, and clearly the most superior gnome on
top of the Bose sign. We love him!
The team at
THE FISH BOWL love the gnomes, thanks for
including us in your latest gnoming adventures.
Our real estate
office Ring Partners are happy to report two
gnomes in residence on our roof. Check them out when
driving up or down Shepherds Hill Road.
The Jacobs Tyres gnome looks like it is there
to stay! Keep up the good work!
could our office have some more gnomes on the roof?
the more the merrier! (Ring Partners)
Hey, what a fantastic thing you are doing for the
community - in a very busy and stressful world you bring
some happiness & lightheartedness to all (my kids love
going 'gnome watching'). If I'm truthful so do I!!!!!
Viva la gnomes!!!!
I love your work. Keep it up and don't let the anti-
gnomers discourage you. You lighten & brighten up our

them restored. Go Pharkadee! God bless the
Thanks for lighting up Blackwood and surrounds.
Thanks for making me smile. Thanks for your sense of
humour. This is what life should be. Thanks
I have the "Coromandel Station crossing" Gnome as
mentioned in "Episode II Attack of the Gnomes". He is
well and likes his new home in Coromandel Valley as the
freight trains were giving him migraines. He often pops
into The Duck Inn for a beer. He is also looking forward
to a relocation to Tasmania in the new year with us.
keep up the great work gnomers! you do us proud up in
these here hills.
hahaha i just love it! Blackwood is somewhat bleak
most of the time.. but the gnomes give it some life!
Thank you gnome rangers, goodluck & keep up the great
work. hope to see more of it in the future!
Hey guys, Just letting you know, you guys are
legends. I have a circle of friends and we like to do
stuff around the community neighborhood to get noticed
(in a good way :D)! When we saw your gnome acts we just
sat there and said 'What
Legends' and we wish to become gnome rangers!
Great going guys!!!Life is so serious these days-
thanks for bringing the "magic" back to the people.I
hope you never get caught!
Great. Keep the good work up. It makes life a
little more interesting to know someone is doing
something for the fun of it.
what the hell are you doing how did you get on the
We have just moved to Coromandel Valley & think that
the gnomes are fantastic!! We love going gnome spotting
what a bloody shame that
hooligans can get off by shashing down harmless
gnomes!!! so many have gone "m.i.a" and i think its
just diabolical. i say power to the rangers and send all
the young violent kids to cuba. i hear there is a lovely
holiday camp there for such people..
Will the gnomes be represented in this years
Blackwood Christmas pagent? Being that they are now
iconic and an obvious business relations phenomenon.
Perhaps their float theme song could be specially
written and performed by the Hill Top Hoods? A challenge
Great work -makes grocery shopping a whole lot easier
when I can tell my two year old we can go gnome spotting
when we've finished. Thankyou for keeping the gnomes
going, we love it. I'm sure they'll be a bit of gnome
kharma coming to those vandels
It's such a pity to hear that vandals are clearing
the gnomes throughout Blackwood. I think it's about time
you put out some more!!!
Rex Jory also did a piece on your gnomes in the
sunday mail 29th october.
I love the gnomes.. the council posters are an
absolute crack up!!! Did a double take and nearly wet
myself I was laughing so much!! Get rid of those
Go Gnome Rangers !!!
I'm a convert. I never used to see the point in
placing the funny little coloured men in your front
garden, it seemed, dare I say, tacky. But driving
through Blackwood town centre and seeing the happy
little chappies smiling down on all of us makes me
giggle inside. Great idea keep up the good work.
Hey gnomers, you guys (or girls) rock! I have one
query, are you by any chance ninjas? because cherry
pickers would be hard to disguise and keep hidden.
Anyway keep up the good work and don't get hurt gnoming!
The lovely gnomes bring a smile to everyone's faces -
what a gift. We live in hope that when we arrive @ our
shop each morning, we will find a little friend above
our door! Thank you.
who puts the gnomes up? im watching :)
I went "gnome spotting" with my 4 year old brother
the other day and he loved it, but was quite
dissapointed when we went to do it again and a lot of
them were missing. If there are people out there who are
taking them down, then they are unblackwoodian. My
brother thought they'd died of hunger and that the pizza
shop man should have left scraps out
hey really love the work guys. great idea. its a pity
people take them down...hopefully someday they will see
the light. its amazing you have never been caught. must
go about 4 in the morning or something. keep up the
great work. :)
The gnomes provide me enjoyment while driving through
blackwood. Must find them all :)
The gnomes from the 2003 operation are still in place
on the coro valley shopping centre - is that some kind
LOVE YOUR WORK PEEPS, ANZ signs one to be proud of. I

puttin Blackwood on the map.
possibly the best idea anyone has ever had. truly a
service to the blackwood hills community.
When there are soo many worries in the world, it's
wonderful that you can bring a smile to grown-ups. Just
please be careful - don't do yourselves injury so this
wonderful community service can continue!
Fantastic to see the little blokes in the big hats
and cheery faces have returned. Always brings a smile
to my face. I always try to keep an eye out for my
regulars in the morning to checkt that they're still ok.
Mitre 10 blackwood requests a few gnomes.
Speaking to her about them the other day and how they
were popping up and she said I wish we had some.
The gnomes are great. My kids love looking for them
every time we go to Blackwood. Thanks heaps!!
the gnomes are the best thing in blackwood!! its
unique and looks awesum.. it puts u in the spirit of
i love the idea of the gnomes but make it spread EVEN
MORE at blackwood soon therell be more reviews keep it
up gnomers and put a gnome at blackwood primary
i have only been in australia (blackwood) for a year
so i missed the 2003 gnomes. i have to say this is the
best public display i've seen even after spending 5
years in art school...
So much rotten news this year-Thanks Gnoming wags for
giving us a reason to lol!
I love these gnomes and the entire concept of gnoming.
You guys are fab! What a way to promote clean, harmless
fun. As a long-time Blackwood resident I must say I'm
quite dissapointed at the buisnesses who have removed
their gnomes. Come on guys, show some old-fashioned
community spirit! Let's take Blackwood gnoming to the
AWESOME work with the gnomes! The gnome on the coles
lamp post absolutely did it for me. There's no reason
this couldn't spark off other gnome attacks elsewhere...
It would be so cool if people could do their own
attempts in other states/countries and send them to you.
Anyway, cheers - great to see people having some great
harmless fun that gets people really talking!
Keep up the great work. Its good to see a tradition
still going strong... Gnome Power
"well done. joy, there's too little of it."
"Love your work!"
"From a Blackwood Old Boy: Congratulations on this
morning's Channel 7 'Sunrise' story by Mel."
"Just writing in to let you know that your secret
little agency was on tv today. Sunrise this morning
showed footage of the blackwood shopping strip with all
the gnomes perched atop the high buildings and clinics
everywhere ... Keep up the good work guys and never stop
what your doing."
"Good work .... Go Wackyness :) bring on good clean
"How do you get away with it without getting caught.
I think you's are amazing!"
"we think the gnomes are great and super duper. We
love the one on the sign of Shiraz court - we live right
nearby so see it everyday. Good luck for future gnoming."
"Congratulations on the Sunrise coverage. Go Churchill

Keep up the good
work! My husband works for
as an installer. He gets to drive around
the area all day, so he keeps his eyes peeled for the
gnomes. He was really thrilled to find one on top of his
own work place! By the way, if you ever need any help in
your mission give me a shout. I happen to know someone
with a tall van and a ladder :)
There are gnomes
appearing in Blackwood Park now!!!
I heard both Osama

an amazing job i hope that your latest exploits will

answer to stopping terrorisim.
