Fictional Dreamworks character Master Po Ping, more popularly known as Po, was absolutely adorable as a little panda in Kung Fu Panda 2. If you’re a big fan of this 3D animated film, then you’ll definitely love Po even more as he transforms into an incredible sand sculpture. Join him and the rest of his Dreamworks buddies from Madagascar and Shrek as they are carved in large sand sculptures at the 2016 Sand Safari in Surfers Paradise!

The Sand Safari has become a favourite annual event among locals and tourists from all over the world, thanks to our friends from Streets Ice Cream. This beautiful panoramic shores of the Gold Coast will turn into a precinct of art inspired by the region’s sand and sea for 24 days. The wonderland will showcase sand and sea themed art with pop-up photo galleries of entries submitted by professional and amateur photographers and students. You’ll also find enormous inflatable sculptures installed throughout Surfers Paradise by international artists such as Filth Luker & Pedro Estrellas, and edgy mural art by 40/40 Creative.

The Sand Safari will also be host the yearly Australian Sand Sculpting Championships along the foreshore and the Gold Coast Sand Trail, where ten artists will impress Surfers Paradise by carve sculptures in 10 tonnes of sand. Visitors can also look forward to taking selfies with the awesome sculpture and photography exhibitions.
