Sculpture by the sea Bondi 2017

Bondi to Tamarama walk, 19 October – 5 November 2017.

The Bondi to Coogee walk hosts the annual Sculpture by the Sea exhibition, since the inaugural one-day event in 1997, the free exhibition transforms the coastline into an outdoor gallery showcasing local and international artists and activities. From humble beginnings, millions of visitors have flocked to the cliff tops of Bondi and Tamarama to take in the variously playful, awe-spiring, and surreal installations which have made Sculpture by the Sea the world’s largest free outdoor event. This year's event is expected to attract over half a million visitors over three weeks. Starting at the bottom of Notts Avenue near the main strip of Bondi Campbell Parade, the exhibit follows the path of the Bondi to Coogee coastal walk all the way to Tamarama Beach with over a hundred sculptures exhibited by local and foreign artists along the Bondi to Coogee walk. The Sculpture Indoor exhibition can be found at the walk’s mid-point at Mark’s Park, with access to the cliff top main attraction available via the stairs at Hunter Park, Gaerloch Avenue, and Pacific Avenue.
