Sculpture by the Sea

Sculpture by the Sea is one of the world’s largest free to the public events. The spectacular Bondi to Tamarama coastal walk is transformed into a 2km long temporary sculpture park featuring over 100 sculptures by artists from Australia and across the world. This year is Sculptures 16th year and as a Bondi local I have watched this event grow and develop from a few small sculptures dotted on Bondi Beach to an event attracting thousands of visitors each year. It is a 3 week event and takes place in Oct-Nov each year.  Which is your favourite?

This is a kinetic sculpture that is a tribute to the 220 victims of the Bali bombing. When the wind blows the bamboo makes an amazing sound. A beautiful memorial looking at Ben Buckler headland, Bondi, Sydney

  1. Particularly great shots of the ribbons and the casting rods. I have to get back to SBTS before it finishes.

    It is a superb Sydney event – the best one yet invented, I believe. Thousands agree with me.

  2. Great photos …. thanks for following along with the Life Bus. Sounds like you have already hitched a ride on the Life Bus concept!! Have fun out there.
