Every year, for three weeks, a group of Sydney’s famous beaches host Sculpture by the Sea. Bondi, Tamarama and Bronte are linked by a path that winds along the stunning coastline. Artists from all over the world, bring their sculpture, to take part in this unique open air gallery, one of the most beautiful locations in the world. This year’s winner was American sculptor Peter Lundberg, whose concrete and steel work won out over 100+ entries. The Bondi to Bronte walk is one done by locals on a daily basis, and often taken for granted. It is truly spectacular, and not to be missed, by Australian and international visitors alike. Even if you cannot coincide your visit with this exhibition, make time to do the walk, you won’t be disappointed. Imagination runs wild, and many pieces are interactive, this just adds to the experience.
Maybe if you look hard enough, you might just see whales breaching off the coast, as they often do at this time of year. Last year, my favourite artwork, a pride of lions relaxing under a tree, won 2nd prize. I can’t wait to see what has been created this year. I plan to go near sunset, accompanied by my husband and our dog. It’s kid and animal friendly, so why not grab the family, have a healthy walk and take in some culture. Fish and chips on the beach is a great way to finish. Perfect for Sydney summertime!
