Every October, I vow I’ll make it to Sculptures by the Sea. And nearly every single year I never get there. It only runs for two weeks and it’s a good hours drive away, so trying to fit it in at that busy time of the year can be hard. I can’t understand why events like this and things like the Vivid light festival and the Hyde Park noodle markets only run for two weeks in Sydney. They are getting so popular and attract thousands of visitors that when you do visit it’s completely crowded.
This year, we ventured out on an overcast Sunday to see the famous exhibition of sculptures. I knew parking would be hard so we opted to park down near Bronte beach and then walk towards Bondi. It was definitely a good walk, a 6 km round-trip!
The Bondi sculptures were a mix of traditional style, humorous, abstract, eclectic and absurd. It really was a great day out, combining various works of art with the lovely coastline of the eastern suburbs.
I definitely like to go again, maybe when it’s not so crowded? Ha ha!
They also hold this event in Cottesloe, WA in March. I bet that isn’t as crowded as Bondi!
