SAND SPECTACLE HAS SUMMER FEEL
This summer, feel the sand between your toes in Sand in the City, an interactive and playful exhibition exploring Sydney’s legendary beaches. This Museum of Sydney exhibition – filled with sand – features giant sand models of the city’s famous beaches and creates many opportunities for imaginative play. It is inspired by Australians’ love of the seaside, and in particular the tactile enjoyment of scooping and shaping sand with our fingers and toes. So, you’ll be able to play and interact with tiny versions of the famous Manly and Bondi beaches. Visitors can also create their own sandcastles or shape something impressive from a range of ready-made moulds using over 1.8 tonnes of sand, or build their own beach landmark in Lego using more than 300,000 bricks, minifigs, trees and more. Lego certified builder Ryan McNaught has created Lego models of some of the coastline’s much-loved landmarks, including Bondi Pavilion and Macquarie Lighthouse. You can create your own harbour waterway or grassy headland using digital technology and an overhead projector. Surrounding the sand pit will be storyboards and interactive displays showing life at the beach. Sand in the City is designed to appeal to all ages – kids and adults alike.
