HEAD IN SAND WORKS WELL FOR ARTISTS
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.
