There’s always plenty on in Surfers Paradise, and this February we’re excited to see the annual Gold Coast Sand Safari Arts Festival return. Sand Safari is a free event running from the 9th to the 25th of February and celebrates sand, sea and surf on the infamous coastline of Surfers Paradise.

Surfers Paradise will come alive with large-scale sand sculptures and inflatable art. This year’s theme is sport, which is only fitting with The Gold Coast Commonwealth Games quickly approaching.  The most anticipated event of the festival is the Australian Sand Sculpting Championships. Held over the weekend 9th-11th of February, sculptors from Australia and around the world will battle for the Australian title. Expect to be wowed, with sculptures creating intricate masterpieces, all made of sand!

Last year, Surfers Paradise was filled with quirky art; blow up tentacles boasted from some of the most famous buildings like 50 Cavill Ave and The Islander and even the Nerang River featured a mythical blow up creature. We’re excited to see what the festival offers this year, and we’re sure it’s going to be amazing.
