The sands and streets of Surfers Par­adise are com­ing alive in a cel­e­bra­tion of our sea­side cul­ture with the 2018 Sand Sa­fari Arts Fes­ti­val.

The free event fea­tures this week­end’s Aus­tralian Sand Sculpt­ing Cham­pi­onships, draw­ing thou­sands of spec­ta­tors to ad­mire some of Aus­tralia’s – and the world’s – most tal­ented sculp­tors, as they in­tri­cately carve life-sized mas­ter­pieces through til to­mor­row. Watch as mer­maids and myth­i­cal crea­tures line the fore­shore with each sculp­ture en­cap­su­lat­ing a dif­fer­ent sport­ing theme.

The highly cov­eted cham­pi­onship ti­tle will be an­nounced at 4pm to­mor­row. You can also cast your own vote for your favourite sand sculp­ture via the Surfers Par­adise Com­mu­nity Face­book page – sim­ply ‘like’ the pic­ture of your favourite to cast your vote.

Bris­bane sand sculp­tor Peter Pa­pa­mano­lis will be among the tal­ented com­peti­tors
