SWELL Sculpture Festival 2020

Currumbin Beach's annual fest returns for its 18th year.

We're all sculptors. Don't believe us? If you've ever taken a bucket, filled it with sand, plonked it onto the shore and shaped it with your bare hands, then you've sculpted something. With that it mind, it makes sense that part of the Gold Coast would celebrate the art form on its beach — but there's more than just sandcastles on offer.

Now hosting its 18th outing until Sunday, September 20, SWELL Sculpture Festival turns the shoreline into an openair art gallery, with installations popping up along the sand. Yes, by simply walking along the beach, you'll cop an eyeful of some stellar art (and some grains between your toes, the sea breeze and quite the view, obviously).

In total, the ten-day fest features over 50 works to Currumbin Beach for an event that attracts more than 275,000 visitors each year. And, it also spans small-scale sculptures, guided twilight walks and artist talks.
