Sculpture by the Sea is an annual event held at Cottesloe Beach in Perth. The event began in Bondi, Sydney, in 1997, when David Handley, the Founding Director wanted to create a free to the public major exhibition of arts. In 2005, Sculpture by the Sea was launched in Cottesloe and has been held annually at Cottesloe Beach.

The Town of Cottesloe works with Sculpture by the Sea organisers to help facilitate this brilliant community minded cultural event! Between the 2 March and 19 March 2018, over 70 local, interstate and international artists will transform Perth's most popular beach into a stunning sculpture park overlooking the Indian Ocean.

The Cott Catt Bus runs every 15 minutes between the station and the beachfront, everyday during the 'Sculpture by the Sea' exhibition.  For further information on the Cott Cat Bus click here or telephone the Town on 08 9285 5000.
