Walcha has a reputation as one of the most art-friendly towns in Australia.

With a thriving arts community Walcha has been able to create a unique Open Air Gallery of Sculptures and Artworks, a must see for any artist or art lover. The locals have embraced their artistic reputation, now boasting one public artwork for every 60 of its citizens. According to one of Australia’s best known art critics, ‘there can be no town in Australia that is so art friendly’.
A number of significant Australian artists, were born, bred and still reside in the Walcha area, and others have been enticed to move here due to the presence of the vibrant arts community. To see a list of Walcha artists and their websites just scroll further down this page.

The concept behind the Open Air Gallery

At the suggestion of the Walcha Arts Council, Walcha Council has adopted the concept of developing Walcha as an Open Air Gallery. The decision was taken for a number of reasons, not least of all to develop Walcha’s distinctiveness, to provide an additional dimension to the quality of life of our community and to provide a source of expression for our very talented local artists.

There are 41 pieces of art scattered around the town which have been created by local, national and international artisans. Most of the works are have been created using local timbers, numerous pieces forming seats for taking in the ambiance of our the great vistas around town.
