Sculpture by the Sea

Home > Sydney > Outdoor
Sculpture by the Sea is on again and will run until the 2nd of November, giving you two more weekends to get down to Bondi and see what nearly 100 artists have managed to create.

Australia's largest outdoor sculpture exhibition has been running in Sydney since 1996, and features a series of sculptures temporarily installed along the walk from Bondi Beach to Bronte Beach via Tamarama.

The location is spectacular, the art is varied, interesting, and often surprising. If the sun is shining it also makes for a great day at the beach.

The recommended format is to walk from Bondi to Bronte (south, or to your right from Bondi when facing the water) and back again, with a break inbetween at Bronte for lunch, and a cool swim when you arrive back at Bondi.

The walk itself (one way) should take you about 1 hour depending on how long you spend admiring the art. Remember to take a bottle of water if it's hot.

You can reverse the direction if you like with the benefit that there are more places at Bondi to have lunch.

Note that on the weekends the walk gets quite busy. If you don't like crowds try to go earlier (before 10am) or later on (after 6pm) in the day.

Here is a map of the walk with some annotation.

There is metered parking at Bondi and Bronte (on the Bronte Rd Loop). It's possible to get free parking in the streets around Bondi if you don't mind walking a little, Bronte is harder.

You can also catch the 380 bus from Circular Quay (or anywhere along Oxford St) to Bondi, or catch the train to Bondi Junction and meet the bus there.

From Bronte you can catch the 378 bus back to Bondi Junction or Central. See for maps and more information.
