WATCH: Australian Sand Sculpting Championships underway in Surfers Paradise

The Sand Safari Arts Festival has kicked off in Surfers Paradise, with one of the highlight events already underway.

Some of the world’s best professional sand sculptors have begun transforming the Surfers Paradise foreshore into a fairy tale wonderland for the Australian Sand Sculpting Championships.

Fifteen talented sculptors, including three highly-acclaimed international competitors, will showcase their skills across the next three days as they bid to design and intricately carve an enchanting fairy tale scene.


Little Red Riding Hood, Pinocchio, Cinderella and The Little Mermaid are just some of the many of the fairy tale favourites set to emerge from the sand.
