Travel Feature | Sculpture on the Farm Dungog

Updated: Oct 31

Sculpture on the Farm is held every two years at Fosterton in Dungog and features a fantastic outdoor exhibition of talented Australian creators. 100 sculptures will be on display in the gardens, paddocks and galleries of Fosterton, a rural cattle property just outside the village October long weekend 2021. The sculptures are the work of more than 50 artists from Tasmania to Queensland, and all are available to purchase.

This unique tourism concept for the Dungog region attracts over 2,000 visitors. Managed by volunteers, producing an event like this is no easy task! I recently took a trip out to Dungog and met up with Philippa and John Graham who generously offer their property for the exhibition, and both work tirelessly, along with other volunteers, to produce the event.

Despite the amount of visitors, there is plenty of parking, refreshments and opportunities to purchase the sculptures. A free bus operates from the Dungog Community Centre to Fosterton. The event kicks off with the ticketed Preview and Gala Opening Ceremony on Friday night. This is the opportunity to wander through the luscious gardens, galleries and paddocks with a glass of bubbly as you soak up the spectacular views. Sculpture on the Farm brings country life and an artistic exhibition together to form an unforgettable experience.
