The NIROX Sculpture Park, the first of its kind in Gauteng, offers a relaxing atmosphere in which to enjoy an art form not ordinarily open to the general public. Situated about an hour’s drive from Johannesburg, the 15 hectare, lush expanse of land that was once a commercial trout farm now offers an impressive display of world-class sculpture amid a sea of greenery, complete with walkways and water features. 
 
Entrance to the fair costs R150 per person and can be purchased directly via Webtickets. Limited tickets will be made available on the day, so it is best to book beforehand to avoid disappointment.
