30 artists will exhibit at the ninth annual Sculpture at Scenic World exhibition from 9 April –10 May 2020.


Sculpture at Scenic World is an outdoor exhibition sited under the canopy of a temperate rainforest along the elevated Scenic Walkway.

Artworks are installed by experienced arborists and arts handlers - we have proudly maintained a 0% ecological footprint since inception. Located in the Jamison Valley, the event is accessed via the world's steepest train or for a more gentle descent, the Scenic Cableway. Ticket price includes unlimited access to all Scenic World attractions for the day of entry.

Scenic World is located in the Blue Mountains, a World Heritage region west of Sydney, Australia. Scenic World is less than two hours’ travel time (~100km) by car via the M4 & Great Western Highway. Free undercover parking is available in our multi storey carpark on site. Sydney Trains operate between Central Station and Katoomba Station on the Blue Mountains Line. Scenic World is located 3km from Katoomba Station, accessible via the Blue Mountains Explorer Bus or the public bus Route 686 which both stop outside our Main Entry.

Guided and self guided tours of the exhibition generally take a further 1-1.5 hours. Content responds to the National Curriculum or NSW Board of Studies Syllabus – learning has relevance back in the classroom.
