Every year a beautiful sculpture festival is set up along the beach at Currumbin on the Gold Coast and it is definitely worth a visit.
Sculptures from a range of Local, national and international artist line the pathway and spill onto the sand, making a lovely slow walk along. It is such a fabulous way to get the whole family into appreciating art. Being able to wander around the sculptures and interact with some, makes it truly accessible art for the masses.

Lots of pieces give us pause for thought and create conversation about art or current political and environmental issues, others are just for fun, and to make you smile play with ideas and materials.

One permanent fixture on the walk is this relaxed bronze goddess on the beach. I think she just encapsulates the whole feel of Currumbin.
The number of kidlets I saw wandering along the beach peering at the interactive sculptures with big smiles on their faces, really makes you see what a great afternoon out this is.
I think Sandy the dog walker was one of my favourites, I loved the fun dogs, and it was created right here in Queensland by the creatives at Monte Lupo.

At the end of the walk there is an opportunity for you to vote for your favourite and programs are $5. Make a day of it by checking out the website first to see when the entertainment will be around and take a picnic, or choose from some of the local yummy food vans, here is the website
