"The Beacon by Robert Klippel" Top 5 Page for this destination Circular Quay Tip by cjg1

Circular Quay, Sydney: 88 reviews and 199 photos


The Beacon sculpture is right in Circular Quay by the Rocks. The sculpture was created by one of Australia's best sculptors, Robert Klippel. It was given as a gift to the people of Sydney by James Fairfax, in 1992, as a 150 year anniversary gift.

It is an odd sculpture and looked like a giant clock from a distance but after all art is subjective.
