Australian Traveller magazine has compiled a list of 100 things to do in Australia before you die and the Sculpture Symposium comes in at 97.

It beats protecting the country's flora and fauna, attending Tiwi Islands' annual footy day and getting stranded on Wilson Island.

"Take a picnic and watch the sun set over one of the world's most spectacular outdoor galleries, the Sculpture Symposium: 12 individual stone works carved by Australian and international artists in 1993," the article says.

"To see the sculptures at their best, get there at either end of the day as a pink and yellow sky swirls around, perfectly contemplating the works."

The list was compiled with the help of 10 avid travellers and well known people such as Getaway host Catriona Rowntree, journalist George Negus and South Australian foodie Maggie Beer.

NSW also took first place on the list with the top tip being to visit Lord Howe Island, 600km from the mainland in the Tasman Sea.
