Gnomesville - the Mecca for garden gnomes
Once there was a garden gnome. The classic opening of the adventure fits quite well with an article about Gnomesville, a small village of garden gnomes.

North of Denmark is Gnomesville, almost as a Mecca for garden gnomes. It is not the Scandinavian Denmark, but a place in southwestern Australia, south of Perth and Fremantle.

In a secluded roundabout there is a strange attraction with numerous colorful garden gnomes.

Various sources have somewhat different interpretations of how this little gnome attraction occurred, but central in it is the roundabout they are placed at.

According to the website Gnomesville.com it all started with a lone garden gnome in protest of the roundabout which was built by local authorities.

It is uncertain who placed the first gnome, but over the years, both locals and tourists have added gnomes to dramatically increase the population.

From the very beginning, about 20 years ago, the population of gnomes has grown, and today there should be about 5.000 colorful garden gnomes in different sizes in the fairly unknown roundabout and surrounding areas.
