In order to make your Sculpture by the Sea experience as effortless and enjoyable as possible we have compiled some information about the exhibition, how to get there, where to stay and where to go in the local area for food and refreshment.

Sculpture by the Sea is staged along the Bondi to Tamarama coastal walk. The coastal walk begins at the bottom of Notts Avenue, which runs off Campbell Parade, Bondi. The coastal walk can also be accessed by stairs at various points along the exhibition route at Hunter Park, Gaerloch Avenue and Pacific Avenue. The exhibition finishes at Tamarama Park, Marine Drive, Tamarama.
