We look forward to welcoming you back - we are COVID-19 Safe!

The SWELL Sculpture Festival returns to Currumbin Beach on the Gold Coast from September 8 to 17. If you haven’t already, now is the chance to check out the 10-day outdoor sculpture display. Make sure to bring your family and friends for a beautiful inspiring trip.

The Festival

In case you didn’t know, the Swell Sculpture Festival has a long and fruitful history. SWELL Sculpture Festival, based in Currumbin on Queensland’s Gold Coast, is a multidisciplinary arts enterprise that connects people, art, and location. SWELL has put on 873 sculptures at the principal show on Currumbin Beach since 2003 and has continued to forge links between people, art, and the site.

Since then, Currumbin Beach has become a vast outdoor art gallery of modern sculptures by national and international artists during the SWELL Sculpture Festival. For the 2023 edition of the festival, Currumbin Beach will showcase approximately 70 massive modern sculptures and pop-up installations. The SWELL Smalls Gallery and the cultural activities at SWELL Fringe are also returning.

Don’t miss out on the opportunity to participate in and learn about the art and the artists through various fascinating events, such as guided twilight tours of the artworks, live music, comedy, master classes, artist talks close to the sculptures, and artist-led workshops.

Please keep in mind that the festival attracts a significant crowd. It is ideal to plan a getaway on the Gold Coast while attending the 10-day event. So why not stay with us in the beautiful island cove of Pine Lake Elanora?
