Whale Tales by the Water


A new migrant art installation is coming to Sydney’s West Harbour.

If you see a whale’s tail emerging from the waterfront on your next harbor walk, don’t worry. It’s art.

Waterfront Whale Tales sees 30 sculptural whale tails created by 30 different artists on a 6km stretch of Sydney’s West Harbor from August 11 to September 24. , Cockle Bay, Darling Quarter, ICC Sydney, Australian National Maritime Museum, past The Star, to Pyrmont then Sydney Fish Market.

While each is a separate work to admire in its own right, get closer and discover a unique code that you can enter into the Waterfront Whale Tales app to read the story behind each work.

In addition to being able to discover the 30 tails via the application, you will also come across a gift, a discount or a prize. There are other prizes for completing each of the mini trails and entry into a major prize for spotting all 30 whale tails.

After the event, the tail sculptures will be auctioned off, with proceeds going to the Kids’ Cancer Project. Expressions of interest in purchasing sculptures can also be taken throughout the event.

The initiative is presented by the New Sydney Waterfront Company in partnership with global public art trail specialists Wild in Art and supported by the NSW Government through the Investment NSW CBD Revitalization Scheme.
