Sand Safari 2015
Like sands through the hourglass, here comes the days of amazing magical creations.
This February let the Gold Coast foreshore at Surfers Paradise and other locations take you on an incredible, enchanted, safari in this year's Australian Sand Sculpting Championships presented by Streets Ice cream, sculpting Disney characters and scenes in you guessed it - the wonderful world of sand.
Imagine a dozen 10-25 tonne sand sculptures of your favourite Disney friends sitting right here on the beautiful Surfers Paradise foreshore as sand sculptors competes in this year's Australian Sand Sculpting Championships, sculpting Disney characters and scenes in sand. There'll also be an interactive Disney sculpture where you can have your photo taken among the display, along with sand art and bottle workshops.
Sculptors will be at work daily from 8am-6pm between Friday, 13 February to Sunday, 15 February for the competition sculptures, as well as the building of the Disney Interactive Sculpture 9.30am-6pm daily from Wednesday, 18 February to Sunday, 22 February.
All sculptures will remain open until Sunday, 1 March 2015.
With the Sand Safari running over two weeks, there will be plenty of time to grab the whole family and head to Surfers Paradise. It is enough to inspire you to grab your own bucket and spade and take to the beach to build and create your own disney creation, "if you can dream you can do it".
