b. Palmer Sculpture Biennial 2020

The Biennial has established itself as a major sculpture event in Australia. We believe it is now, as a national sculpture event, the second longest running, continuous sculpture exhibition in the history of sculpture in Australia. Only Sculpture By The Sea, Bondi has a longer continuous history.

The Ninth Palmer Sculpture Biennial will open on Saturday March 14th

The gate will be opened at 12:00, and at 1:00 pm the Biennial will be opened by Ian Hamilton.
At 4:00 pm, the Verandah Music Event will commence. It will feature the music of Andrew Allanson, Kelly Menhennet, Jennifer Lush, Aaron Thomas, and The Yearlings.

The Biennial will be open until Sunday April 12th

The Biennial will be open on Wednesday afternoons from 2:00 to 5:30pm and Saturdays and Sundays from 11am to 5:30pm until Sunday April 12th.
Visitors may walk through the Landscape and view the sculptures at leisure. But those who find walking difficult can be driven around the Biennial in a 4WD vehicle.

Location, Suggestions and Hints

We are 3.5 km from Palmer down the Davenport Road which starts opposite the Hotel at Palmer on the way to Mannum. It is a good idea to take walking shoes, water and a hat.
There is space for parking outside the front gate and people to help visitors just inside it. They will be able to provide maps of the premises indicating where the works are located.
There is absolutely no smoking allowed in the Landscape.
