Located in the scenic hills of the Sunshine Coast Hinterland, Flaxton Gardens is the host venue for the 2023 Sculpture on the Edge. Now in its 13th year, the annual sculpture competition is coordinated by Arts Connect Inc, a volunteer-run, membership-based, not-for-profit group. The 2023 program includes the annual exhibition, workshops, artists’ talks, guided tours, special events and even large-format catalogues for visitors with visual impairments.
Flaxton Gardens is a stunning property that boasts uninterrupted, panoramic views of the Mooloolaba coastline. Meander through the pristine surroundings where concrete walkways and cobbled footpaths lead visitors to a magical wonderland of artistic excellence in the form of 192 sculptures. These original works by local and international artists are on display indoors in a large, high-ceilinged, well-ventilated and naturally-lit space. The larger sculptures are showcased outdoors, surrounded by perfectly manicured gardens.
