Foundry tours are available Tuesday & Thursday between 10:00AM and 12:00am. Tickets can be purchased at the North Head Art Gallery where our tour will start with a complimentary coffee or tea from our Bundu Espresso cafe. Foundry tours usually last about half an hour to an hour. The cost is $10 for adults, and children under 10 are free. Groups of 10 or larger get a group rate of $8 per person. Maximum group size is 30 people, larger groups can be accommodated with prior arrangements at the foundry.

You will be taken through the facilities at the Australian Bronze fine art foundry. Including the sculpture garden, Australian sculpture school and North head art gallery. Your guide will show examples in all stages of the lost-wax casting progress and explain in detail how an original art piece is turned into a finished bronze sculpture, as well as show examples of past works done by our foundry. The foundrymen will be at work during the tours and a little action is guaranteed. To witness a live bronze pour see our Monthly Bronze Pour section.
