Getting There & Around


There are regular Transperth bus and train services to Cottesloe Beach. For more information on these services refer to Transperth timetables. For more detailed information to assist you with your trip planning please visit


The Cott Cat is a free shuttle bus service that runs between Cottesloe train station and Cottesloe beachfront. The shuttle will meet every train from Cottesloe train station on the Perth to Fremantle line between 10.30am to 5.00pm daily for the duration of the exhibition, and will return to the station from Cottesloe beachfront at 15 minute intervals. And with parking at the beach hard to find on busy weekends we suggest parking your car at the Cottesloe Station and catch the Cott Cat to and from the beach.


To make picnicking amongst the sculptures a little easier this year we will be introducing a picnic drop-off and pick-up zone on Marine Parade opposite our catalogue marquee from Monday – Saturday, 5pm – 7.30pm during the exhibition period. Please look for the A-frame signage on-site and we ask that cars only remain for 3-4 minutes, with Council fines applying thereafter.

This year Sculpture by the Sea and Healthway have partnered to promote the Act-Belong Commit message which encourages individuals to take action to protect and promote their own mental wellbeing

Keeping mentally healthy is just as important as staying physically healthy and it’s as easy as A-B-C: act-belong-commit.

Act – keep mentally, physically, socially and spiritually active: take a walk, say g’day, read a book, do a crossword, dance, play cards, stop for a chat…

Belong – join a book club, take a cooking class, be more involved in groups you are already a member of, go along to community events…

Commit – take up a cause, help a neighbour, learn something new, take on a challenge, volunteer…

Being active, having a sense of belonging and having a purpose in life all contribute to happiness and good mental health.

Start today…

Go for a walk at Sculpture by the Sea and create your own wellbeing.

It’s as easy as A-B-C!
