Sculpture at Scenic World is now open in the Blue Mountains, providing the perfect excuse to disconnect from the devices and reconnect with art and nature these school holidays.

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, artist workshops and entry to Sculpture Otherwise – an indoor exhibition of smaller works held at the Blue Mountains Cultural Centre.

The kids will also have a chance to learn and create their own masterpieces with the free Sculpture for Small People program, featuring art making workshops and a Kids Art Ninja Trail Guide which will keep the kids guessing as they explore artworks along the Scenic Walkway.

Trace shadows in the daily Puzzle & Shadow Play workshop, make your own ninja puppets in the Ninja Play workshop on Saturdays and create sculptural masterpieces from natural materials in the Nature Play workshop on Sundays. All workshops are free and run from 10am-2pm in the Makerspace in the Scenic World plaza.

Visitors can also extend their Blue Mountains discovery with a range of exclusive accommodation packages catering to families, couples and everyone in between. Packages are available from just $98 per person for a two night stay.

Sculpture at Scenic World Exhibition Curator, Justin Morrissey, said the exhibition provided a memorable way for families to unplug from digital distractions and enjoy quality time together these school holidays.

“The Blue Mountains puts on a show in Autumn and Sculpture at Scenic World ticks all the right boxes for a weekend getaway that will create lasting memories,” he said. “From world class sculptures to incredible landscapes and a free public program that takes in the best of the Blue Mountains, Sculpture at Scenic World has something for everyone these school holidays.”

Sculpture at Scenic World is free with a valid Scenic World ticket and includes all day access to the exhibition, along with the Scenic Railway, Cableway, Skyway, Sculpture Otherwise and all public programs.

Prices start from $44 for adults, $24 for kids and $119 for a family pass. Season passes are available including unlimited entry to Sculpture at Scenic World from April 12 – May 12. Online earlybird savings also apply for entry before 10am during the school holidays.

Tickets are now available.
