With over 300 tonnes of sand, sculptors from Australia and overseas will create sculptures of characters from the Wizard of Oz, following Dorothy and Toto's journey from Kansas to the Land of Oz. Visitors will meet the Lion, Tin Man and Scarecrow and witness the battle against the Wicked Witch of the West, with some help from Glinda the Good Witch of the North.
(Last year's Sandstorm event at Port Noarlunga featured character sculptures of Alice in Wonderland - the above video shows the making of sand sculpture designed by Kevin Crawford and sculpted by Kevin Crawford and Fanny Vieira)
There will be plenty of activities on offer for all ages, including sculptors talks and FAQ sessions, children's sand art and sand bottles, family game zone, giant sandpit, activity sheets and interactive photography.
