We invite you to witness Australia's best sand sculptors in action as they compete in the 2nd annual Australian Sand Sculpting Championships.

Surfers Paradise Beach will be transformed into a golden gallery of the curious and the beautiful during The Australian Sand Sculpting Championships, an annual event in Surfers Paradise.

Over the first Friday, Saturday & Sunday of competition, 9 professional sculptors will mould & carve over 70 tonnes of sand into fantastic, crowd pleasing works of art, as they deliver their interpretation of this years 'Sand Safari' theme.

See Surfers Paradise as never before, as lions, elephants, zebra and hippos take shape along the iconic Foreshore.

Play your part in the competition, with children's activities throughout the week, including sand sculpting workshops, sand art and sand bottle making.

And don't miss the main attraction; a 60 tonne collaborative work between all sculptors, and the centerpiece of the Championships.

The 2013 Australian Sand Sculpting Championships will take place from Friday 15 to Sunday 24 February on the Surfers Paradise Beach.
