Brisbane Sculpture Festival 2021
Check out large and small sculptures in leafy surroundings.
Mosey around one of Brisbane's two Botanic Gardens — put one foot in front of the other and just see where they take you, really — and you'll never be bored. There's just that much greenery to see and soak in, whether you're escaping the CBD's chaos or you've made the trip to the inner west.
Doing the latter — so, heading to Mt Coot-tha but staying at the bottom of the mountain — is definitely recommended between Friday, June 11–Sunday, June 13. That's when this year's Brisbane Sculpture Festival is livening up the place, displaying a heap of both small and large sculptures both indoors in the venue's auditorium and throughout its outdoor spaces.
Between 10am–4pm daily, you can take in the hefty array of art at your own leisure, or you can hop on an artist-led tour. There's also a Friday night session from 6–8pm to celebrate opening night — and, across both Saturday and Sunday, there'll be life drawing sessions, artist talks and demonstrations.
