Above: A perfect day to take in Sculpture on Clyde at Willinga Park. Don’t miss this great sculpture by @jen_mallinson_sculpture - the winner of the Outdoor Emerging Artists Award!
Sculpture on Clyde is now an event of Regional significance placed at the centre of the South East NSW. Located at Willinga Park, which itself is a world standard equestrian centre with its own international sculpture garden the event is an incredible achievement for its organisers that have the full support of Destination NSW.
The maturity of the Batemans Bay Chamber of Commerce in their decision to locate the outdoor exhibition at Willinga Park, moving away from the pettiness and insignificance of shire boundaries, allows the whole of the South East NSW to call the exhibition its own and to join the many positives that are beginning to attract comparable quality events in our region from the Four Winds concerts to the highly successful Narooma Oyster Festival
The South East NSW has Sydney to the north, Melbourne to the south and Canberra to the west placing it at the centre of the largest population base in the country with #unspoilt coastlines, the freshest produce, pristine hinterland and the core values that travellers are looking for.
The Sculpture On Clyde organisers are to be commended for stepping outside the "box" and creating a regional event at an international standard. The plus for Batemans Bay is the additional legacy of the public art acquisitions that the community can then enjoy as the public art trail in Batemans Bay grows. The Batemans Bay Chamber of Commerce and Tourism have once again lead the way with vision and commitment and reiterated the key role that the business community play in tourism, having the expertise, the networking skills and the acumen to create an event that has wider benefits for their community from employment to cultural expansion.
Thanks also must go to Destination NSW for their support of the event and for recognising the regional vision.
