Poet’s Corner is a collection of three bronze busts by Cathy Weiszmann of Canberra focussed Australian poets Judith Wright, A.D. Hope and David Campbell.  Poet's Corner highlights the importance of these poets and creates a space where people can reflect upon, recite and enjoy poetry.  A sample of each poet's work is presented on the granite plinths supporting the busts. 

An artwork titled Private Poetry by Richard Tipping, purchased from Sculpture by the Sea in 2011, has been erected in an adjacent location as an adjunct to the Poets’ Corner installation.
