Planning your trip

Planning your trip

When planning your visit to Sculpture by the Sea, please note that the site is significantly busier and more crowded on Saturdays and Sundays than it is during the week. For people with disability, we recommend visiting midweek. There is limited access to much of the site and we recommend viewing the sculptures in Marks Park. Tamarama is accessible via a steep ramp to two 1/2 hour accessible parking spaces. The parkland area is grassed with pavement along some of the beach.

Large print catalogues

The Sculpture by the Sea Access & Inclusion Program offers large print Exhibition Catalogues on loan from the Catalogue Information Marquees and manual wheelchair loan.


Access point/drop-off zone

Marks Park provides the best access to a large selection of sculptures, the area is mostly flat and grassed. This area is also the designated drop-off and pick-up zone for visitors requiring accessible entrance to the site.

The location of the drop-off area is on the corner of Kenneth Street and Marks Lane. Vehicle owners will then have to seek parking elsewhere, where normal parking restrictions will continue to apply. To drop off and pick up at the designated area you will need to display your disability permit to the traffic controller to enter Fletcher Street.

Accessible parking

Please refer to the Waverley Council map for accessible parking spaces in the area. Due to the popularity of the exhibition, access is restricted to Notts Avenue, Fletcher Street, Kenneth Street and Marks Lane from 9am-6pm. You may have to drop off your passengers and drive quite some distance to secure a parking spot. We would advise visitors requiring accessible parking to consider visiting the site during the week, as vehicle access can be more difficult during the weekends.
