Your Family Sculpture Guide
Looking for an adventure that has something for everyone these Easter school holidays? Well, look no further.
Sculpture at Scenic World is your one-stop shop for all things fun. After all, where else does a visit to an art exhibition begin with a trip on the world’s steepest passenger train?
Sculpture at Scenic World is free with entry to Scenic World, and if you would like to stay for a night or two, we have partnered with some of the best hotels in the business to create a range of exclusive accommodation packages which include tickets to Sculpture at Scenic World, breakfast and entry to Sculpture Otherwise at the Blue Mountains Cultural Centre.
The interactive and engaging Sculpture for Small People workshops are returning this year on the back of popular demand. Held every weekend throughout the month-long exhibition, the workshops are led by qualified art educators and provide a wonderful opportunity for kids to create their own artistic masterpieces to take home. Bookings are recommended as these sessions are often sold out. Click here for more info.
Another great family friendly activity is the Kids Arts Trail handbook. Pick it up with your tickets, travel down to the Jamison Valley via the Scenic Railway, and immerse yourself in world class art and pristine rainforest while the kids sketch their favourite artworks.
While you’re in the valley, a fantastic lunch option is to pick up a Sculpture at Scenic World picnic box from the on site EATS270 restaurant. Enjoy homemade hummus, olives and crackers in one of the incredible picnic shelters stretched along the 2.4km elevated Scenic Walkway.
Scenic World is 90 minutes from Sydney by car or two hours via the Blue Mountains train line. From Katoomba, visitors can hop on the Blue Mountains Explorer bus or the 686 bus and disembark at the Scenic World main building. Alternatively, there’s free car parking on site.
Finally, we all know that the weather is an important factor when planning an adventure, so visit our friends from the Bureau of Meteorology and get a full run down on the forecast before heading up the hill. Don’t forget to bring some warm clothes, as the mountains can be cool during the crisp Autumn months.
Earlybird savings also apply for entry before 10am, including entry for two adults and five children under 14 years for just $88. Kids under four years old are free. Book your tickets in advance here.
So, what are you waiting for? Hide the kids’ iPhones, unplug the X-box and disconnect the Wi-Fi to reconnect with each other and experience the amazing outdoor art gallery in the pristine Blue Mountains rainforest.
