Sculpture at Scenic World
Time Out says
Discover sculptures nestled amongst this Heritage listed Jurassic rainforest
Every Sydneysider is familiar with Sculpture by the Sea in Bondi, but few have ventured further out of the city to marvel at sculptures in the wildly different but equally stunning setting of the Blue Mountains.
Accessed by the world’s steepest railway with the iconic Three Sisters as a backdrop, Sculpture at Scenic World is Australia’s premier outdoor sculpture exhibition that transforms an ancient rainforest into an outdoor gallery.
The 2.4km scenic walkway will be home to 29 thought provoking installations from local, national and international artists that hide within or interact with the natural environment of the towering Jurassic rainforest. Alongside a range of attractions at Scenic World, art enthusiasts can check out Sculpture Otherwise at the Blue Mountains Cultural Centre or tackle an extended trail of public artworks across the region with Twist n Shout.
This exhibition is the perfect excuse to make a trip to the World Heritage listed Blue Mountains for an overnight stay and make the most of all the natural and artistic beauty that the area has to offer, especially after the destruction of the recent bushfire crisis. Scenic World has teamed up with a range of the region’s leading accommodation providers to offer exclusive package deals throughout the event, with prices starting at $99 per person for a two-night stay, so you can spend the whole day exploring spectacular views and artworks without interruption.
You’ll be able to spot the sculptures from April 9 until May 10, with a valid Scenic World ticket getting you free entry to the exhibition, and season passes are available for unlimited access throughout this period.
