Sculptures at Scratchley returns in 2024 with 160 sculptures on display

Now in its second year, Sculptures at Scratchley, held in partnership with the Newcastle Museum and the Fort Scratchley Historical Society, returns to the unique forted headland that stands at the entrance of Newcastle Harbour in the Hunter Region of New South Wales, commanding an unsurpassed 360’ vista of coastland and city, from the standpoint of 160 sculptures on display from 11 to 26 May 2024.

Once again, Sculptures at Scratchley invites the public to participate in the judging process. You can select the major prizes by choosing your three preferred sculptures. This egalitarian approach to art appreciation sets this event apart from others. In addition to the $40,000 prize pool, a new $5,000 Small Sculpture Award will be introduced this year as well as an indoor component at Fort Scratchley Function Centre.
