Each year, fantastic forms line the promenade along the Pacific shore in Surfers Paradise and several other of the whimsically named communities, like Mermaid Beach and Paradise Island, along the Gold Coast waterfront in Queensland, Australia.
Wait. What? That's Made out of SAND?
Entries are judged in several categories including Australia against The World. In that competition two teams of invited artists, one from Australia and the other from around the globe vie for king of the sandbox.
All in all, over 180 tons of sculpted sand became temporary masterpieces.
It seemed a shame that someday these whimsical works of art will be washed away.
