More than 100 sculptures from Australia and abroad transform the Bondi to Tamarama coastal walk into a temporary sculpture park

Now in its 23rd year, Sculpture by the Sea is one of Sydney's key annual arts events, drawing more than 500,000 to the 2km coastal walk from Bondi to Tamarama to enjoy site-specific sculptures by top artists and emerging talents from Australia and abroad.

The line-up each year features plenty of local heroes and attracts a strong contingent of regular entrants – no small thanks to the $70,000 prize. But the most captivating works can come from the least-known artists; all it takes is a great idea.

We’re yet to be briefed on the 2019 artist line-up, but are happy to confirm that the weird and wondrous installations will return to the path beside the crashing waves from October 24-November 29. 

As in previous years, there will be a keen focus on accessibility, with free tactile tours for people with diverse abilities, Auslan interpreted artist talks and ceremonies, and work experience programs for people with disability who are interested in the art world.

Check out more splendid walks around Sydney with slightly less art, and our hit list for the best art to see this month.
