I am always looking out for new experiences, wherever I may find myself.

Sculpture walks are a great way to explore some of Sydney's sights. The get you outside and appreciating the cultural side of our city. Some of the most well-known ones are temporary, like the annual Sculpture by the Sea in Bondi. But there's also permanent ones, which serve to liven up spaces. They're all over Sydney, but which one is the best?

One of my favourite sculpture walks is the Walsh Bay Sculpture Walk located near the piers, right on Sydney Harbour. It has eight pieces and it seems that everywhere you go, there's something to see. It is a little out of the way to go to for just the walk, considering how much else there is to see on the harbour, but it's a great discovery when you're already in the area (Walsh Bay is an arts hub, so it draws the right type of person too).

Public sculptures really are starting to be found everywhere though. For example, Chatswood Trasport Interchange is filled with public art (I bet you never noticed a lot of it before, but take a look here and you're sure to see it with new eyes next time).

What sculpture walks do you like? Is there one where the works just make it particularly special? Or where the setting is amazing?
