An unique sculpture exhibition to be enjoyed in Sydney
After a successful year in 2015 the unique exhibition of contemporary Australian sculpture called HarbourSculpture will now run for 18 days from the 16th of March to the 2nd of April 2017.

In 2013 HarbourSculpture was awarded the Australia Day Award for the Hunters Hill Community Event of the Year. After positive feedback from the Hunters Hill community, sculptors, visitors, sponsors and supporters they returned again in 2014 with 71 artists displaying 80 pieces of work.

When Leanne and I went along in 2015 there had been an increase to a total of 112 pieces or works that were created by 88 Australian artists. These creative works once again showcased the beautiful Clarkes Point Reserve location, the Deckhouse function centre and surrounds.

Leanne and I had the pleasure of spending some time walking around the Clarkes Point Reserve and through the Deckhouse being totally amazed at what had be created.

Why don't you make a morning or afternoon trip to this exhibition by the water at the Clarkes Point Reserve, Woolwich Dock and the Deckhouse. Woolwich Dock has a rich maritime history and is managed by the Harbour Trust.

You could take a picnic lunch along and spend time at the reserve where there are free electric barbeques, toilet facilities, picnic tables and shaded areas to lay your picnic rug. It's easy to feel relaxed here with the peaceful surrounds and the magnificent harbour view in the background.

While at the exhibition you may like to have either breakfast, lunch or just coffee and cake at the Deckhouse which overlooks the Lane Cove and Parramatta Rivers with views of the Sydney Harbour Bridge.

Even if you live out of the area and would like to leave your car at home you could catch a train to Circular Quay and then board a ferry to Woolwich. From here it is just a short walk to Clarkes Point Reserve and Woolwich Dock. Stop off at the Woolwich Pier Hotel for a bite to eat along the way.

So, if you are looking for somewhere to go from the 16th of March to the 2nd of April and you would like to see what's on display in 2017, this is the place to be.

I swung by today while people were setting up. It looks like it will be lit at night.
