If you are down in Sydney between October and November, then you've got the perfect opportunity to see the spectacular art exhibition at Bondi. is an outdoor art sculpture exhibition, which is conducted annually over the course of three weeks from late October to early November and is free for public.

The exhibition features artworks from both local and international artists. You can find the unique and astonishing sculptures displayed along the Bondi to Tamarama coastal walk, beginning at the bottom of Notts Avenue, which runs off Campbell Parade, Bondi.

The weather is perfect at this time of the year as it is the beginning of the Spring season, with plenty of sun and cool breeze. The best time to visit is early in the morning when the temperature is still cool and it is not yet crowded with visitors.

There are plenty of artworks to observe and enjoy, and the scenic views is a gold mine for photographers and photography enthusiasts alike. Some of the artworks are also interactive.

You can purchase exhibition catalogues, which are available from the visitor's information desk. The catalogue includes a map of the exhibition and information about each sculpture.

Each art piece tells a story. This one is called Mengenang, which is Indonesian for remeberance, and consists of 222 bamboo poles representing the number of victims of the Bali bombings.

In addition, there is also the Sculpture Inside, which is an indoor art sculpture exhibition coinciding with the outdoor exhibition, located in Mark's Park, Tamarama. Here, you will have the opportunity to view and purchase artworks of talented emerging as well as established Australian and international artists.

I went to the exhibition in 2012 and one of the sculptures that stood out the most for me has got to be the large 3.5 metre high dome called the Mirador located on the South Bondi lookout, which had mirrors lined entirely on its inner walls.

can be enjoyed by the whole family, young and old. If you happen to be in the area during the time of the exhibition be sure to check it out. Each year they bring in different artists and artworks, making each exhibition unique. So, even if you've been to the exhibition once before, you could still go to the next exhibition and have a different experience to your previous one.
