Outdoor Art Gallery featuring food trucks and entertainment

NOX, latin for night, is a night sculpture walk around the Randwick Environment Park. Experience the natural environment like never before as artists from UNSW Art & Design transform the park and wetland into an illuminated outdoor art gallery.  For three nights only, artworks will be installed around the park to form a leisurely 1.5km loop walk, starting and ending at the Randwick Community Centre. Artists will be on site every night to discuss the inspiration behind their artworks.

After the walk, grab a bean bag and chillout under the starry skies whilst being entertained with live music, roving fire twirlers and LED hula hoopers or have a dance at the illuminated silent disco. 

Satisfy your appetite with delicious offerings from a range of popular Sydney Food Trucks including 

  • Happy as Larry
  • Tsuru
  • The Nighthawk Diner
  • Agape 
  • Cantina Movil

 A licensed bar will also be available to quench your thirst. The food trucks and bar will be trading from 5pm to 9pm.

Frequently asked questions 

In order to make your NOX experience as effortless and enjoyable as possible, here you'll find answers to some frequently asked questions about the night sculpture walk.  

Is NOX a ticketed event?

You do not need a ticket to attend NOX - all you need to do is turn up!

What time is the event?

The exhibition times are 6-8pm every night during the NOX event. During this time, you will see artworks, installations, video works and live performances. The bar and food trucks will operate from 5pm to 9pm.

What should I wear?

We recommend wearing flat sturdy shoes and something warm.

Is the event wheelchair and pram accessible?

The NOX Night Sculpture Walk is an easy 1.5km loop walk with no stairs. The majority of the walk is relatively flat and situated on wide paved footpaths, enabling easy access for wheelchair and pram users. 

However, a short part of the walk (approximately 50m) is unpaved, narrow and located alongside bushland. It is possible for a small pram/wheelchair to navigate this section of the walk which contains 2 of the 31 artworks. 

Accessibility on this section may prevent larger wheelchairs from continuing on with the sculpture walk. We recommend returning to the Randwick Community Centre via the paved sections of the walk to enjoy the range of entertainment being provided.

Event staff will be on site every night to assist with accessibility and safety.

Will there be accessible parking?

Car parking close to the event entry will be available for visitors with limited mobility and/or using a wheelchair. A valid mobility parking permit must be displayed.

Can I bring my dog to the event?

Dogs are welcome at the event but must be on a lead at all times. Additionally, dogs must not be within 10m of food preparation areas.

Is there an ATM?

There will be an ATM available at NOX.
