A Children’s Story in Sand

Last weekend I experienced the Enchanted Forest Sand Sculpture Adventure at Dromkeen in Riddells Creek.

The exhibition has been sculpted by 11 incredible artists from around the world, each one making a contribution to a wonderful children’s adventure story, The Enchanted Forest, using 300 tonnes of sand.

The eleven sculptures are such a unique and beautiful way to tell a children’s story. There was a unicorn, and all sorts of wonderful fantastical characters created in sand.

Each sculpture was completed in just 10 days by artists who travel around the world creating masterpieces from sand, snow, ice, and sometimes, concrete and even pumpkins.

The Enchanted Forest Sand Sculpture Adventure is an inspiring example of how vision and passion for your art can lead to something truly beautiful.

Two-time Australian Sand Sculpture Champion, Leo Vamvalis was our tour guide, explaining how each sculpture was created, and what it represented.

Whether you’re an art lover, a lover of children’s stories, an adult or a child, you will love this exhibition. It’s under cover, so it’s open all weathers.

How amazing is the detail on this sculpture made of sand?
