Sculpture Walk at the Royal Botanic Garden Sydney

Our volunteer guides have designed a walk that brings our sculptures and statues to life. Learn about the artwork, artists and the how our attitudes to public art have changed over the last 150 years whilst visiting some of our more than 60 sculptures and statues.

Ever wanted to know more about the Statues and Sculptures in the Royal Botanic Gardens Sydney. Who were the artists ? How did the works end up in a Botanic Garden ? How were they received by the public, politicians and administrators ? What efforts are being made to conserve and protect them ? Discover the stories behind many of our more than 60 statues and sculptures on this walk with our passionate volunteer guides. Our sculptures reflect the changing atitudes to public art over the last 150 years and include nineteenth century neo-classical gems by Charles Summers and contemporary masterpieces by Bronwyn Oliver. Walks on the first two Wednesdays will end at the Sea of Hands installation designed by award winning artist and proud Yaegl woman, Frances Belle Parker. You will even get a chance to help create this, our latest sculptural work in the Garden.
