About Wonderment Walk
Great societies are defined through their art, science and knowledge. Wonderment Walk will strengthen Melbourne’s reputation as a creative city of knowledge by enhancing walking routes connecting places of significance with sculptural wonderments. We aim to create accessible open air galleries of sculptures & installations combining science, mathematics and art to engage passers-by with wonder, delight and curiosity.
Wonderment Walk aims to create open-air galleries which excite and inspire, galleries without walls and without boundaries, open to the public free of entry or exhibition charges.
Our projects are drawn from an arts base but also combine science and mathematical disciplines. The works are intended to engage the public in the art whilst inspiring curiosity and encouraging innovative thoughts and expression. Beginning in, but not limited to, the city of Melbourne, the artworks will form walks around the city connecting various attractions in and around trafficked areas.

Great societies are defined through their art, science and knowledge. Wonderment Walk Victoria will strengthen Melbourne’s reputation as a creative city of knowledge by enhancing walking routes connecting places of significance with sculptural wonderments. We aim to create accessible open-air galleries of artworks, sculptures and installations combining science, mathematics and art to engage passersby with wonder, delight and curiosity.
Wonderment Walk installations use art as a science communications medium. The works are intended to engage the general public, inspiring curiosity and encouraging innovative thoughts and expression. We aim to create open-air galleries that excite and inspire; galleries without walls and without boundaries; galleries to complement and enhance Victoria’s reputation nationally and internationally as a place of art, culture, innovation and knowledge.
Wonderment Walk installations will form a walk in a trafficked area or an area which is being encouraged in Melbourne. The walk will connect attractions, leading people through Melbourne’s scientific, cultural, academic and civic spaces.
Wonderment Walk seeks to expand its activities to include suburban areas of Melbourne and regional Victoria to ensure that those communities also enjoy the stimulation and benefits which flow from artistic and inspirational undertakings.
Melbourne/Victoria has a number of Sister-City/State relationships. We aim to develop an exchange program where international artists are invited to contribute installations. Reciprocally, our ‘wonderments’ may be able to be temporarily loaned to international communities. This would foster goodwill and encourage trade and commerce for Victoria.
As an open-air gallery, the installations will be available at all times to the public, free of entry or exhibition charges. We welcome people from all walks of life to our Wonderment Walk. We also hope to facilitate formal tours for schoolchildren, students and tourists as Wonderment Walk develops.
