Northshore Sculpture by the River 2023

Don't just stare at Hamilton's waterside scenery — spend two months peering at sculptures big and small at this free art festival.

A trip to Northshore Hamilton usually means taking in the scenery, whether you're staring at the river, the grassy surroundings right there on its banks or both. But for two spring months, there's something else to look at that you won't see at the northside spot all-year-round: sculptures big and small.

Presented by Sculptors Queensland, returning exhibition Northshore Sculpture by the River is showcasing works by its members, featuring pieces on display both indoors and out — and in all shapes and sizes, too. Peer at sculpted wildlife, people, abstract forms and more, all for free.

There are two parts to the event. The indoor portion runs from Saturday, October 7–Sunday, October 22, open 10am–4pm daily, all in The Shed at the Hamilton precinct.

Or, wander around outdoors from Saturday, October 7–Sunday, December 3 to spot sculptures around the Hamilton Northshore walkway — along with the river view, of course — with the outside component open all the time.
