LOCATION

Sculpture at Scenic World is an outdoor event sited along the elevated Scenic Walkway, under the canopy of a temperate rainforest. Artworks are delicately installed by experienced arborists and arts handlers - we have proudly maintained a 0% ecological footprint since inception.

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.

Schools & Groups

Information for Schools

Sculpture at Scenic World 2020 will run from April 9 – May 10. Bookings are open for guided school group tours at Scenic World, Katoomba.

Students will increase their understanding of art criticism and art history by engaging with artists and arts workers. Participants will discuss the relationships between the artist, their world view, artwork, environment, and audience.

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.

School excursions to Sculpture at Scenic World provide a unique learning arts and environmental experience. We offer:

  • Qualified, passionate educators.
  • Fun, interactive indoor and outdoor activities including riding the world’s steepest railway, steepest and highest cable cars in Australia. All offer epic views of the World Heritage region and iconic Three Sisters.
  • Easy access to the natural environment of the Jamison Valley and dynamic learning along 2.4 kilometres of Scenic Walkway. Opportunities include including observing temperate rainforest flora and fauna, and exploring the site's coal mining heritage.

The students were engaged throughout the day, they learnt a lot of new facts about art as well as how to protect and preserve nature
