The Attraction of This Beach in Sydney Isn’t the Sun or Water. It’s the Art.

A collection of artists gather each year in Sydney, Australia, to create public sculptures. The collective spreads out over a 2 km distance along the beach and includes over 100 artists from around the world. These artists’ zany and outlandish creations not only become a hot topic for locals, but will leave you in awe at the power of the human mind.

Don’t believe us? Prepare to be dazzled, Australia style!
