Having delighted over 33,000 visitors at last year’s exhibit, you better believe that this year’s Sand Sculpting Australia event will be bigger, better and so much sandier…
Returning to Port Noarlunga this April, the largest ever exhibition on the Fleurieu Peninsula will be themed A Day At The Zoo!
We were beyond impressed when they brought us their Princesses and Pirates exhibition last year, but this year’s event sounds like it will be a roaring good time, and considering it is double the size that can only mean double the fun.
Not just for the kids, this is for the big kid in everyone! Take a journey through the sand pathways, you will feel like you are on an African safari and an icy exploration through the Antarctic all at once… From elephants and giraffes to polar bear, and don’t forget the iconic Aussie Koalas! So many animals brought to life in the sand.
It really is a sight to behold and something pretty spectacular, and the picturesque beachside location of Port Noarlunga in the Fleurieu Peninsula makes for the perfect location.
- Eight Australian and two international sand sculptors will work to build the masterpiece
- It will take 18 days of tireless work to get the animals completed
- The sculptors will use over 270 tonnes of ‘brickie’s loam’ sand to create the life-sized sand sculptures
With crowds expected to be in excess of 40,000, the exhibit will run for 16 days, which gives you plenty of time to check it all out (maybe more than once)!
Sharon Redmond, Director of Sandstorm Events said, “We are absolutely thrilled to be returning to Port Noarlunga once again”
“We are delighted with the new much larger and accommodating location in Port Noarlunga, which will allow us to comfortably attract more visitors into the stunning township.”
“Our sand sculptors are amongst the world’s best. Visitors can be assured the realism of our sand zoo will be mind-blowing to all”
