There are 41 pieces of art scattered around the town which have been created by local, national and international artisans.

Most of the works are have been created using local timbers, numerous pieces forming seats for taking in the ambiance of our the great vistas around town. View the open air sculptures photo gallery to see some of these great works.

The Concept

At the suggestion of the Walcha Arts Council, Walcha Council has adopted the concept of developing Walcha as an Open Air Gallery. The decision was taken for a number of reasons, not least of all to develop Walcha's distinctiveness, to provide an additional dimension to the quality of life of our community and to provide a source of expression for our very talented local artists.

So far, a number of sculptures by both local and overseas artists have been established in and around our town. The concept however will provide for a variety of media including landscaping, street furniture and murals. Aboriginal art will also be featured. Stroll through our town, inspect our art and enjoy our hospitality.
