Having a life outside work is precious. Days off are cherished and well spent on worthwhile activities and free events. One of the free events I am looking forward to going to is the Swell Sculpture Festival.

The Swell Sculpture Festival is a 10 day event from 11th to 20th of September. It has been held yearly for 13 years now, and this year I made sure I was there to be part of it.

I headed to Currumbin Beach which is 30 minutes drive from my place. When I arrived, there was difficulty finding a carpark. I decide to park in Currumbin Wildlife Sanctuary for $8 all day and walk to the Festival which took about 10 minutes.

I am amazed how creative and imaginative the sculptures are. They are unique on their own. I can see that the artists really put their best effort to showcase their art works. There are about 60 sculptures ranging from small to large exhibits. And I am given a chance to vote for my favorite sculpture. I hope that what I voted for gets an award. There are informative artists' talks, master classes and children's workshops as well.

Most sculptures are along the beach so I have the chance to inhale the sea breeze and walk barefoot on the sand. Alongside with me are families with their children or couples with their dogs.

This event is worth going back to next year and more years to come!
