Unique and fascinating sculptures and art installations will be positioned all along the foreshore and an art exhibition will be set up in the Brighton Surf Club in this free annual event run by the Brighton Surf Life Saving Club.

Now in its 12th year, the works mostly follow a sea/ocean theme and thousands of people each year visit and enjoy the display. The Sculptures Trail is set out on nearly half a kilometre of the beachfront and is a fantastic way to spend an hour or so at the beach.

It's a brilliant initiative by the lifesavers at the Brighton Surf Club to bring art to the people. The event was inspired by the Sculptures at Cottesloe (in Western Australia) and Bondi Sculptures events, also held annually.

Definitely want to head down and check it out, what a great way to bring art to life along the foreshore.

This is a great exhibition in a glorious location. I recommend rounding up some friends, having tea on the beach and strolling along the foreshore to admire the sculptures as the sun slowly sets in the sea. It's perfect!
