Trail information

Walcha’s Open Air Sculpture Trail

You can start this delightful sculpture trail anywhere, but we began at the Royal Walcha Cafe where we were staying, after grabbing an early morning coffee (open from 7am). The previous evening we’d stopped by the friendly Visitor Information Centre in town to pick up a handy map and brochure (also available on the Walcha website). You might also want to download the Walcha Scupltures Soundtrail to your phone for an immersive audio experience.

Don’t miss the unique fountain sculpture at the park in town – this sculpture by artist and farmer Stephen King was the start of Walcha’s Open Air Gallery of over 55 outdoor sculptures, mosaics and artworks.

Friendly locals out exercising their dogs were happy to stop for a chat. There are lots of scenic vistas and interesting angles for photographers, plus interesting benches that invite a rest, so take your time and enjoy the walk. Keep your eye out as you arrive and depart Walcha for iconic sculptures at the outskirts of the town on the Oxley and Thunderbolt Highways.
