Took a stroll along Sydney coastal cliffs at Bondi, to explore the interesting and weird Sculptures by the Sea.
Set along the stunning Bondi to Tamarama coastal walk, in Sydney’s eastern suburbs, is the largest free to the public sculpture exhibition in the world; Sculptures by the Sea.
Sculptures by the Sea is a spectacular way to experience one of the most scenic coastlines Australia has to offer along the east coast of New South Wales. Known as Sydney’s most popular events, on average approx 520,000 visitors come to view the 100 sculptures each year, whilst admiring stunning oceans views, of deep aqua coloured waters, crashing against the cliffs. Sculptures by the Sea has been running in Sydney since the late 1990s, and has captured the imagination of it’s visitors, generating an almost unprecedented level of goodwill among the public as they enjoy one of the most unique events in the world.
It’s been a few years since I last walked the beautiful cliff side paths of Bondi. And, even more years since I’ve enjoyed that walk to admire the many weird and wonderful sculptures during this amazing exhibition. So, this year, I made sure to make some time and go exploring. I forgot how calming and revitalising it can be, to walk alongside the ocean, listening to the waves crash against the rocks, and the sounds of seagulls scavenging for food.
So, this summer I have made a pledge to myself, to just deal with the summer heat and spend more time enjoying many of the beautiful coastal walks Sydney has to offer – and less time sitting in the air conditioning at home, wishing I was at the beach.
Sculptures by the Sea is running from 29th October to 5th November 2017, so it may already be finished by the time you read this post.
