Swell Sculpture Festival
Time again for the 16th annual Swell Sculpture Festival, which puts on a wonderful display of over 50 sculptures built by local, national and international artists every year at Currumbin Beach. The free exhibition is open all hours and in our opinion is best seen early morning on sunrise or at sunset. A number of the sculptures are lit up for maximum effect, so if you choose to stay the weekend check it Saturday afternoon and enjoy the SWELL sounds as well as Sunday morning. We put this one on the calendar each year as it is always a great display which makes for some very creative photos. It inspires, amuses and uplifts as you gaze with wonder, appreciation and sometimes puzzlement. We'll start outside the surf life saving club, walk along the beach toward Elephant Rock, taking in the sculptures as we go. We'll make our way back along the footpath. Sunset is around 5:45pm and many of the sculptures will come alive with light. Our final destination will be the surf club once again, where you can join us for Dinner if you like.
