Kings and queens of the castle will converge on Surfers Paradise as the annual Sand Safari Arts Festival returns to celebrate all things sand, sea and sport, transforming the iconic foreshore into a family-friendly fantasy sandscape from February 9 to 25. An initiative of Surfers Paradise Alliance, the free event will commence with the Australian Sand Sculpting Championships from February 9 to 11, where spectators are invited to witness the nation’s best professional sculptors as they carve mesmerising, life-sized masterpieces from 10 tonnes of sand. This year, children will be able to engage in the antics of the colourful cast from ‘Henry and Ethan’s Neptune’s Games Adventure’ – the second in a series of illustrated children’s books created to promote the cultural event and its place in the community to its youngest audience. This is one family-friendly event that should be on everyone’s calendar.
