What do you get when you combine an art exhibition and ancient rainforest? One helluva beautiful weekend in the Blue Mountains.

Sculpture at Scenic World has become an annual event in the Bluies, and this year combines the talent of 32 local, national and international artists, to bring you 29 artworks that are seamlessly blended into the surrounding rainforest, creating a truly unique outdoor gallery.

From April 9 to May 10, you can take in the beauty yourself along the 2.4km Scenic Walkway, which can be accessed either by the world’s steepest railway, or the Scenic Cableway. 

This year the exhibition features local Blue Mountains artists including Elizabeth Rose and Stephen Short as well as artists from as far abroad as Ukraine and USA.  

All artworks are carefully and thoughtfully installed by experienced arborists and artists, ensuring no harm is done to the natural environment. In fact, Sculpture at Scenic World has boasted a 0% ecological footprint, since its inception. 

Tickets are from $44 per person (kids tix from $24) and includes entry to the exhibition on the Scenic Walkway, plus access to the railway, skyway and cableway.
