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

Returning after a two-year hiatus due to coronavirus, Sculpture at Scenic World will transform the ancient rainforest into an outdoor art gallery from April 1 –May 2, showcasing 25 world class artworks from established and emerging artists.

Subtle sculptures and bold installations will capture the imagination of young and old, inviting visitors to experience nature and art in new ways beneath towering rainforest canopy.

Now in its ninth year, Sculpture at Scenic World has earned as olid reputation as a must-see family event, accessed by the world’s steepest railway with the iconic Three Sisters as a backdrop.

Free Kids’ Trail Guides will keep the little ones guessing on a nature-based adventure, while everyone will enjoy entry to Sculpture Otherwise–an indoor exhibition of smaller works held at the Blue Mountains Cultural Centre.

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 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 creates lasting memories,” he said. “It’s a privilege to collaborate with such a high calibre of artists to create an iconic outdoor exhibition that resonates with visitors of all ages.”

Scenic World Chief Experience Officer, Amanda Byrne, added that the exhibition was recognised by Destination NSW as a Regional Flagship Event for its proven track record in boosting visitation to the Blue Mountains.
