Swell Sculpture Festival, 9 – 18 September
Every year, just a short trip up the road from your gorgeous Burleigh Heads Gemini Court Holiday Apartment, the amazing Swell Festival features wonderful sculptures by the sea and is truly a September highlight.
This year 50 sculptures built by artists from Australia and abroad have been placed on the grassy area next to the beach and on the beach with the usual fabulous display on Currumbin rock itself.
The exhibition is open all hours with some sculptures lit up at night for those who are keen on a twilight walk. So, after a fabulous day relaxing at Burleigh Heads and enjoying your Gemini Court Holiday Apartment, perhaps a stroll around the sculptures would be the perfect end to a perfect day?
We go every year with our kids because children just love the sculptures and also there are loads of fun workshops where they can get in and make their own.
I’m always blown away by the incredible array of sculptures made from so many different materials. It’s great to see the artist’s vision and how they can weave together the most ordinary of objects to bring a sculpture to life.
But, as is always the case, it’s the gorgeous beach setting, so familiar to the Gold Coast that makes the Swell Festival as wonderful as it is.
Ask us how to get there. The festival is on a direct bus route from Burleigh Heads, or you can get there by car in just 15 minutes from Gemini Court Holiday Apartments. Up to you but make sure you go!
