ANU Sculpture Walk
The ANU campus on the Acton Peninsula is a unique environment that exemplifies Walter Burley Griffin’s vision for a national capital where landscape and city are truly intermeshed. The campus extends from the lake to Black Mountain and also merges with Canberra’s cosmopolitan Civic centre on its eastern edge. Since the University’s founding in 1946, the campus has evolved to become an integrated environment in which architecture, landscape design and sculpture all complement each other.
Works of art attest to a culture that values creative thinking and enrich the intellectual atmosphere of the campus as a learning environment.
Some of the sculptures on campus have become familiar landmarks to many generations of students and with new works being added to the collection, future generations will continue to benefit from the University’s commitment to art. This booklet is our invitation to you to discover the art that gives such presence to the ANU campus.

ANU has developed an iPhone App for the sculpture walk that provides you with detailed information on every outdoor sculpture on the ANU Campus.
The app has a full artist and title search as well as images of the outdoor sculptures and detailed descriptions of the works. You can also locate all outdoor sculptures and plan your walk using the map application.
