Nature is already at its best along Bondi Beach and the winding paths that take you on a journey from Bondi to Coogee. The 2 kms of path between Bondi Beach and Tamarama has some divine views all year around. These views are exhilarating on a winter's or summer's day. Add some magnificent, imaginative and profound works of art and you have not just a memory of a magnificent coastline, but a moment of provoked visions across different spectrums of light, poised upon the cliffs looking out across the ocean.

So, if you are ready for an experience that is something just beyond what you would expect, take the 380, 333 or 381 or even one or two other buses, you can make your way to Campbell Parade, Bondi Beach. Over 15 million people make the trek from Sydney to Bondi each year, but not all of them get to experience the sculptures on display.

This year has had some amazing events and just some brilliant Bondi days. During winter, they have had the icerink, theatre on at the Pavilion, the Kite Festival in September and all the normal Bondi weekend things to do - swimming, surfing, icebergs, strolling, eating, nightclubbing and shopping. They've even had a spectacular big breakfast with full orchestra to welcome in the Spring.

It's difficult not to do anything in Bondi. Having the opportunity to take in this year's superb collection of over 100 sculptures is what makes up the Sculpture by the Sea Exhibition 2012.These sculptures inspire, impose, create thought and can produce a smile or a laugh. There are some that you can just stand back from and take in a breath as your mind's eye captures the beauty of the coast and the work that sits upon it. The superb sculpture display is on now until November 4th.

Of these, I was wondering who knows who the sculptors are of some of these magnificent pieces of art dotted along the superb Bondi to Tamarama ocean walk.

What 4 sculptures sit right below this one?

And can you name any of their creators? If not, you might like to browse on the Sculptures by the Sea website or purchase one of their calendars or catalogues and learn more about each sculptor.

Is it Chilli around the bend from Icebergs? How many cats and dogs sit upon the rocks? Where can you find storage space?

Which piece of art can be heard when the wind brushes across the ocean path?

How many sculptures are there in Marks Park? Can you say what sits beyond the stone monolithic door overlooking Bondi? Or have you your head among the clouds like the man in the bowler hat?

Can you tell me where the balancing lady sits?

What colour is the string that sits in its frame over Tamarama?

Hope you admire the view!

Could it possibly be said that the view is breathtaking along this path?

Last of all which sculpture do you admire most and why?
