Sculpture at Scenic World sets the stage for romantic getaway
Visitors to the Blue Mountains are invited to make the most of the Sculpture at Scenic World exhibition before it draws to a close on May 12, with the cooler Autumn temperatures providing the perfect backdrop for a romantic weekend getaway.
Sculpture at Scenic World is Australia’s premier regional outdoor sculpture exhibition which transforms Scenic World’s ancient rainforest to an outdoor art gallery for four weeks each year.
Now in its eighth year, the 2019 exhibition features 25 world class artworks set among Scenic World’s natural rainforest, alongside an extensive program of free events including daily guided tours, kids’ activities and access to Sculpture Otherwise at the Blue Mountains Cultural Centre.
Visitors can also explore the Blue Mountains region with TRACKS – an outdoor exhibition of artworks at iconic locations – and extend their stay with a range of accommodation packages starting from just $98 per person for a two-night stay.
Sculpture at Scenic World exhibition curator, Justin Morrissey, said the exhibition ticked all the right boxes for couples and art lovers looking to escape the city for a romantic weekend getaway.
“After a bumper Easter peak season, now is the perfect time to escape the city and reconnect among art and nature in the Blue Mountains,” he said, adding that the calibre of artworks continued to mature with each exhibition.
“The pristine rainforest provides the perfect backdrop for our artists who have again pushed new boundaries to create works that inspire and invite viewers to consider complex themes such as sustainability and environmental conservation.”
Sculpture at Scenic World will continue until May 12 at Scenic World in the Blue Mountains. Entry is free with a Scenic World ticket and includes unlimited all-day access to Scenic World and all public programs.
