You've been swell
The Swell Sculpture Festival is now over for another year.

Celebrating its 10th year it showcased 50 interesting sculptures built by artists from Australia and overseas.

As I become more familiar with life on the Gold Coast, I am always struck by the amount of great shows, festival and events that you can attend for free. I am pretty sure you could find something every weekend to do for free, which delivers something fun and interesting for people of all ages.

I really enjoyed the Swell Sculpture Festival and will absolutely be attending next year. I love any kind of art and sculpture but to have it in that setting with the beach in the background is just magnificent and an incredible way to enjoy some art.

The free exhibition is open all hours with a selection of sculptures - some a little scary, some a little strange but all wonderfully creative and imaginative.

Set over 10 days at Currumbin Beach, you can not only experience the sculptures, but also take part in twilight walks, informative artist talks, visit the Swell Smalls Gallery and learn in the artist master classes and children's' workshops.

There are coffee carts, ice-cream vans and live music all along the beachfront. Already a vibrant beach, the Swell Sculpture Festival further brings the place to life with people, live music and art.

These are some of my favourite sculptures from this year's festival.
