IS Sculp­ture by the Sea on Cottes­loe Beach held at the wrong time?

Beach busi­nesses love the an­nual event, which ben­e­fits from usu­ally calm con­di­tions. How­ever, some men­tioned an event or at­trac­tion at the start of the sea­son could wake the pub­lic from its winter slum­ber. One of the tricks of good busi­ness is evening the lows and highs of trade.

While no one would wan­der the beach look­ing at the sculp­tures in the howl­ing seabreezes be­fore Christ­mas, thought could be given to how Cottes­loe her­alds sum­mer with an­other event in spring. Like the mu­si­cal buoy at Chal­lenger Har­bour in Fre­man­tle, per­haps a col­lec­tion of wind­pow­ered sculp­tures us­ing the breezes to sing in the ar­rival of good weather? Mean­while, a po­ten­tially geo­ther­mal heated sea pool would be a year-round at­trac­tion.
