The only way to get inside a Kelpie is on a Kelpies Tour!
Come and see the world's largest equine sculptures up close and go inside to marvel at the complexity and engineering which created these fantastic pieces of art.
Join our guided tour that takes you through the vision of artist Andy Scott and how history and industry impacted on his designing of these breath-taking sculptures.
The pinnacle of the tour is that you get to experience a Kelpie from the inside, and see for yourself the breathtaking engineering and design of The Kelpies.
Also...2 children with every paying adult goes free!
The Tours operate from the 'Head-Down' Kelpie and are delivered on a rolling basis, so pre-booking is not required or available. The next available Tour time will be displayed at the entrance to the Kelpie.
Due to the resources required to operate we may not be able to operate the Tours on certain days, so we would suggest checking our message at the top of our the home page by 10am for an update on Tours for that day.
Our tour lasts for 15 minutes and capacity for a Tour is 30.
If you have a group booking request, please complete the Group Booking Form and we will accommodate your request based on Tour availability.
