Bondi Beach Turns To An Art Gallery

Spectacular view along the coastal walk of the beaches of Bondi and Tamarama is the backdrop of colourful and unique pieces of artwork made by local and international artists in the annual Sculpture By The Sea.

From miniature pieces to massive effigies and abstract creations, the whole of the coastal walk is turned to a life-size outdoor art gallery. It is one vast playground for the family, group of friends and young kids.

Each masterpiece conveys not just the creative and artistic skills of their creators but reflects a more in-depth look of their passion to see beauty in things that surround us that most of us seem to neglect.

The resourcefulness of these artists is what amazed me the most as they used ordinary and simple materials like bamboo and staple wires to create exceptional masterpieces. Magnificent works of art that even the young can greatly appreciate and like!

Sculpture By The Sea runs until the 4th of November along the coastal walk of Sydney’s prime beach. The annual event is free; however, donations are extremely appreciated.

Tips in visiting Sculpture By The Sea:

  1. Do visit the place during the morning and late afternoon if you want to capture remarkable photos.
  2. Try visiting during weekdays, as the weekend will definitely be a lot of people, making it packed and crowded.
  3. Wear something comfortable and put on sunscreen to avoid getting sun-burnt when walking around.
  4. Bring with you your camera and your eye for beauty.
  5. Have fun!

  6. Thanks for that tour. I’ve seen photos of previous art seasons on the Sydney beach and I think it is such a fabulous idea and a great way to introduce everybody to art. Some of it is so delightfully whimsical. Good post.
