There are over 20 permanent sculptures sensitively sited throughout the Montalto grounds, monumental works sited in open spaces, through to more intimate pieces to discover amongst the wetlands and vines. The abundant birdlife, wetlands and gardens add to the experience as you meander the Sculpture Trail. From January through to May, this permanent collection is joined by at least another 20 works which form the annual Montalto Sculpture Prize.
Visiting the Sculpture at Montalto
The grounds at Montalto are open daily between 11am – 5pm Please allow 1 hour to enjoy the Sculpture throughout the property. We recommend you start the trail no later than 4pm, checking in at the cellar door prior to the walk is advisable, you are welcome to purchase a glass of wine to take on the walk with you. The trail is approx 1km and suitable for most ages and abilities, it meanders over grassy lawns, gravel pathways through vines and boardwalks through wetlands. The grounds are undulating, and reasonably steep in sections, there are benches dotted along the walk, for a well earned rest as you go, and usually situated amongst the bush. On hot days the wetlands provide a welcome cool shelter. We recommend wearing walking shoes, and gumboots through the wet winter period. The trail is manageable with off-road push chairs. Unfortunately the Trail is not suitable for wheelchairs, however with advanced notice we can arrange transport to various sections of the trail. Children must be supervised, as there are open areas to water. We ask for your co-operation in protecting our works of art, as well as the safety of our visitors by not touching or climbing on any sculptures. All sculptures that form the Montalto Sculpture Prize are for sale. We look forward to your visit and hope you enjoy a memorable day of art and wine, in a beautiful setting.
