The mercury is dropping and the leaves are changing colour ... Autumn has arrived in the Blue Mountains!

Sculpture at Scenic World is back in 2019, providing the perfect excuse for an autumn escape that combines nature, world class art and sweeping vistas in the heart of the Blue Mountains.

Now in its eighth year, Sculpture at Scenic World will transform the ancient Jurassic rainforest into an outdoor art gallery from April 12 – May 12, showcasing 25 thought provoking artworks from local, national and international artists.

Subtle sculptures and bold installations will capture the imagination of young and old, while everyone will enjoy an extensive program of free events including daily guided tours, weekend workshops, kids’ activities and entry to Sculpture Otherwise – an indoor exhibition of smaller works held at the Blue Mountains Cultural Centre.

Visitors can also explore some of the Blue Mountains’ finest locations for Tracks – an outdoor exhibition of larger works throughout the Blue Mountains exploring how humans interact with the natural landscape, leaving traces behind.

Accessed by the world’s steepest railway with the iconic Three Sisters as a backdrop, Sculpture at Scenic World provides the perfect excuse for a weekend arts escape, with a range of exclusive accommodation packages at a range of hotels and resorts throughout the Blue Mountains. With inclusions such as breakfast, free wi-fi, access to leisure facilities and more, there’s something to suit everyone.

Sculpture at Scenic World Exhibition Curator, Justin Morrissey, invited visitors of all ages to escape the city and explore the stunning Blue Mountains this autumn.

“Sculpture at Scenic World takes art beyond the white walls of the gallery space to create the unexpected among the natural environment,” he said. “It invites visitors to explore nature and art in new ways and to celebrate the incredible talents of artists who have adapted their ideas to suit the environment.”

Scenic World’s Chief Experience Officer, Amanda Byrne, added that the exhibition was a great stepping stone to experience the Blue Mountains and other regional centres in NSW.

“Sculpture at Scenic World has gone from strength to strength over the past eight years and we are excited to see domestic visitation continue to grow as the exhibition has become a must-do autumn experience,” she said, adding that Scenic World welcomed more than 100,000 visitors during the 2018 exhibition.

Sculpture at Scenic World is recognised as a flagship tourism event under Destination NSW’s Regional Flagship Event program, which recognises and supports events that help to boost overnight visitation and visitor spending in regional NSW.
