Sculpture by the Sea
From the first to the third week of November every year, the stunningly beautiful coastal walk from Bondi to Tamarama Beach in Sydney is transformed into a 2 km sculpture park. The exhibition features over 100 sculptures from artists around the world and now travels, with exhibitions at both Cottesloe Beach in Western Australia and Aarhus in Denmark. This year marked Sculpture by the Sea's 15th anniversary, and, although I couldn't make the trip this time, I was lucky enough to visit the year before last.
The scenery is superb and many of the sculptures are large scale, quirky, or colourful, but my favourites had an organic feel to them and seemed perfectly suited to their temporary environment.
