Sculpture park

The Sculpture Park is an interactive experience. 

The Sculpture Park is a 'space of possibilities', where the environment and people interconnect through a process of discovery, enjoyment and learning. It also allows for social interaction where collective interpretation and reflection can be shared. The Sculpture Park's significance is globally recognised by the International Directory of Sculpture Parks, and was listed by Best Value Schools as one of the 25 most amazing sculpture gardens in the world.

One of the largest sculpture parks in Australia

The Macquarie University Sculpture Park was established in 1992, and founded by Dr Errol Bruce Davis, OAM, B.E. (1926 - 2009).  The University's open parkland of 125 hectares features significant flora and fauna reserves, heritage sites, and an earth sciences garden. Peppered amongst these natural features are some 130 original sculptures by leading and emerging Australian and international sculptors. The natural surroundings provide an opportunity for visitors to visually engage and explore at their own leisure.

The collection aims to show a variety of styles, materials and techniques showing works in sandstone, limestone, concrete, steel, stainless steel, painted steel, bronze, copper and ceramics.
