Sculpture by the Bay Exhibition is held on the March Long Weekend

The vision of  Sculpture By The Bay is to be inclusive, to encourage more and more people to express themselves through sculptural works that are relatable, tell a story, and are accessible to those that appreciate the art.

The objective is to; foster interest in Public artwork, to provide a venue for artists of outdoor works to exhibit, and in particular, to develop a Sculpture Trail within the Dunsborough area.
