Surfers more sandy than usual

Starting next weekend, the Surfers Paradise Foreshore comes alive with sandy sculptures as part of Sand Safari 2015.

The art of sand sculpting will be on display as sculptors compete for the Australian Sand Sculpting Championships which run from Friday 13 to Sunday 15 February. Spectators are welcome to watch as entrants interpret the theme of Magical Friendships. Indeed, visitors can vote for their favourite finished product as part of the People’s Choice Award.

The sandy experience extends beyond Surfers Paradise too, as a magical Sand Trail is created with intricately carved sand sculptures popping up in hotel lobbies, libraries, shopping centres and public spaces across the Gold Coast.

An initiative of the Surfers Paradise Alliance and designed as an interactive event, Sand Safari also offers free activities for families and children alike including beachfront sand sculpting workshops, sand art, sand bottle making and more.
