The 20th Anniversary Wollombi Valley Sculpture Festival was a fantastic success with lots of visitors and many sales. The September 2022, 16 day celebration kicked off with the opening ceremony and prize giving, including the prestigious Governor’s Prize which was awarded for the first time.

The valley was a buzz with 153 sculptures on display and for sale in 6 galleries, 2 wineries and throughout the Wollombi Valley. Festival visitors enjoyed great food, wine, walk and talk tours and of course sculpture created by some of the best Australian and International Sculptors.
