Queenscliff Lagoon Sculpture Walk

The sculpture walk along the foreshores of Queenscliff Lagoon, Sydney, is a must for anyone interested nature and the environment. We stayed right on the lagoon edge here at North Manly and were pleasantly surprised to discover these beauties, designed by community artist Renee Monique and created by local Northern Beaches, Ishi Buki sandstone sculptors.

Each of the eight sculptures reflect native wildlife of the local catchment area. The project was initiated by Manly Environment Center in partnership with local school groups and the "Hop in and Help Manly Lagoon"  education program.

Visiting the sculptures is a hands on way to learn about the local aquatic and bird life, with useful information  and relevant stories accompanying each creature. The lagoon itself feeds into the Pacific Ocean at Queenscliff Beach and is a haven of peace and an ideal spot to spend an afternoon/day.
