The Australian Sand Sculpting Championships are back! People of all ages will love this amazing gallery of sand sculptures. This year will see your favourite Disney characters and beloved scenes from Disney movies come alive!

Let the magic and awe of this year's Sand Safari experience take you to an enchanted wonderland as the Surfers Paradise Foreshore & various locations across the Gold Coast bring Disney's magical friendships to life. This year's Sand Safari will see the coastline of Surfers Paradise fill with a dozen 10-25 tonne sand sculptures of your favourite Disney friends.

Presented by Streets Ice Cream, come and admire the art of sand sculpting as each sculptor competes in this year's Australian Sand Sculpting Championships, sculpting Disney characters and scenes in sand. There'll also be a feature interactive Disney sculpture where you can have your photo taken among the display, along with sand art and bottle workshops.

You can view the sculptors at work daily from 8am-6pm between Friday 13 Feb to Sunday 15 Feb for the competition sculptures, as well as the build of the Disney Interactive Sculpture 9.30am-6pm daily from Wednesday 18 Feb to Sunday 22 Feb. All sculptures will remain open for viewing until Sunday 1 March. Head over to The Foreshore, Surfers Paradise and marvel at Sand Safari.

Running over two weeks, there's plenty of time to grab the whole family for what is set to be an amazing outing, fun for all ages!

You can also follow your favourite Disney characters across the Gold Coast with the Sand Trail from Robina to Helensvale. With 10 mini sculptures scattered across the Coast, no matter where you are there's a Disney sculpture nearby for you to check out. You'll find them at: Robina Town Centre, The Oasis Shopping Centre, Circle on Cavill, Paradise Centre Surfers Paradise, Australia Fair and Helensvale Library just to name a few.
