Visitor Information

Sculpture on the Edge is the annual sculpture event coordinated by Arts Connect Inc and held in the scenic Sunshine Coast Hinterland.

Sculpture on the Edge was initially a collaboration with Maleny Garden Club’s Open Gardens Festival in 2010. That success led to a stand-alone event in 2011 sponsored by the Spicers Group. Initially sculptures were installed at Spicers Clovelly, Montville before moving to the grounds of Spicers Tamarind Retreat, Maleny. In 2022 the event was relocated to Flaxton Gardens to allow expansion to incorporate indoor sculptures.

Now in its 15th year, Sculpture on the Edge continues to grow and feature a wide selection of sculptures for all ages to appreciate. Thanks to the generous support from our sponsors, donors and partners, Flaxton Gardens and Sunshine Coast Council, the event is an outstanding cultural experience for art lovers and visitors.

This year the event will again be hosted at Flaxton Gardens, a stunning wedding and events venue with breathtaking, panoramic views of the coastline from Noosa to Caloundra. Flaxton Gardens is an iconic Sunshine Coast Hinterland wedding venue, winery and function centre located a short drive from the villages of Montville, Mapleton and Maleny in Queensland

The 2024 program includes the annual exhibition, competitions for sculptors and visitors, workshops open to everyone, sculptor talks and celebrations to create a fun and creative experience for all visitors.

Sculpture on the Edge will open to the public on Friday 22 November and will be officially opened with a celebratory event on the evening of Saturday 23 November. The event will run until Sunday 1 December when a closing event will be held to celebrate everyone’s participation in the 15th Sculpture on the Edge.

Arts Connect Inc is a volunteer-run, membership-based, not-for-profit group, and the generous support of the Sunshine Coast Council, our Sponsors, and donors helps make this event possible. Tax-deductible donations can be made through Sunshine Coast Arts Foundation.
