Sand Safari Arts Festival

Surfers Paradise, Gold Coast Area

There is no better way to spend February than at the Sand Safari Arts Festival at one of Australia's most iconic beaches, Surfers Paradise.

Over 17 days, the sands and streets of Surfers Paradise will come alive in a celebration of sand, sea and sport inspired art.

The popular free event features the 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 over the course of the weekend. Watch as mermaids and mythical creatures line the foreshore with each sculpture encapsulating a different sporting theme.

Sea creatures will return again in the form of gigantic inflatable art scattered throughout the precinct, as well as other spectacular art forms that are brand new to the Sand Safari Arts Festival. Their interactive sculpture is bigger and better this year, promising to gratify multiple senses. Keep checking their website for updates and find out who will be joining them on the foreshore. Will it be Neptune? You will have to wait and see!
