The inaugural event in 2017 took place along the beautiful Batemans Bay foreshore, and it far exceeded all expectations. In 2018, the outdoor sculptures were displayed at Willinga Park, which enabled visitors to get a rare glimpse of the impressive permanent sculpture collection at the venue.
The 2018 event enabled the acquisition of 3 amazing sculptures to join “Buoyansea” (the now celebrity upside down octopus sculpture), along the Batemans Bay foreshore. This permanent Sculpture Walk is the real driver behind the Sculpture for Clyde event. The Chamber of Commerce and Tourism’s inspired idea is to create a legacy for locals and visitors to Batemans Bay, with an outdoor art gallery open every day and night of the year.
Now in its 3rd year, the event is expected to be bigger and better in 2019. Here at Willinga Park, we are excited to be hosting the outdoor sculptures once again. The indoor sculpture exhibition will again be staged in the Francis Guy heritage building, 5 Clyde Street Batemans Bay.
- The equestrian facilities at Willinga will not be open to the public.
- Dogs are welcome for this event but they must be on a lead at all times.
- Coffee and snacks will be available to purchase at Willinga.
- BYO picnics are welcome!
