Sand Safari Arts Festival

Each year thousands of visitors flock to the streets of Surfers Paradise to join in the Sand safari Arts Festival, which sees 15 internationally acclaimed artists battle it out to take home the title for the best larger than life sand sculpture created from 270 tonnes of sand along the foreshore. When the only limit is your imagination, and the creative theme is fairy tale classics, you’ll be completely blown away by the detail, skill, and creativity on display as you view not only completes works and art installations, but watch the sculptors creating masterpieces before your very eyes.

It doesn’t stop there either. Your family can completely immerse themselves in fairy tale wonder. Search for Jack climbing the Beanstalk, oversized tentacles as sea creatures climb Cavill Mall, the Magic Mirror that belongs to the wicked stepmother in Snow White, and an enchanted fairy tale wonderland including a pop-up library on the beach and storytelling sessions bound to delight.

You’ll just love seeing the incredible works of art on display in the gallery inside Cavill Mall, with creations from a whole range of talented artists from amateurs right through to established international artists. Running over the span of 17 days from the 14th February right through to the 1st of March, this is non-stop family fun and well worth a visit on your Gold Coast stay.

Environmental Impact Docfest

In February at Home of the Arts (HOTA) you can catch incredible environmental films that will get your thinking, and astound you with spectacular visuals as part of the Environmental Impact Docfest. ‘Anthropocene: The Human Epoch’ is a documentary film that follows the research of a group of scientists as they document changes to the planet geography as a result of humans, and the impact of our species around the globe.

‘Queen Without Land’ is the story of the four year journey of a beautiful female polar bear as she becomes a mother and raises her cubs amongst the melting ice. ‘Into the Jungle’ tells the tale of newlywed zookeepers that move from Australia to Papua New Guinea in the hopes of conserving an endangered species of tree kangaroo. ‘The Pollinators’ tracks the movements of a very valuable cargo of honey bees across America, and the irreplaceable impact of these creatures on the supply of fruit, nuts, and vegetables. Lastly ‘We Rise Up’ asks the question “what is success?” in a world that is changing so quickly and old definitions no longer signify.
