VISITING INFORMATION

What to bring?

McClelland Sculpture Park+Gallery is set amongst 16 hectares of land which includes a number of bush settings. We recommend closed in shoes for comfort and protection. McClelland Sculpture Park+Gallery is primarily an outdoor environment, so be prepared for various weather conditions.

We recommend bringing:

  • In warmer weather – hat, sunscreen and protective clothing
  • In colder, rainy or windy weather – waterproof jacket and warmer layers of clothing, shoes/rubber boots, umbrella, poncho
  • A refillable water bottle as opposed to a disposable one, is a great way to keep hydrated while you walk around the park and reduce your impact on the environment.
  • Waste free lunches
    There are limited bins available at McClelland Sculpture Park+Gallery.  We ask that you take your rubbish and recycling home with you. Better still take on a waste free lunch challenge and see how little rubbish you can take home!
    Food and drinks are also available onsite – cafe.
  • Insect repellent. At certain times of the year mosquitoes and flies become annoying and repellent may help to deter such critters.
