Every year, for three weeks in November the Bondi to Tamarama coastal walk is transformed into a spectacular outdoor art gallery. (01-18 November 2007)

Sculpture by the Sea is a much anticipated contemporary art event on Sydney's cultural calendar. For the past 11 years this event has grown to become the largest temporary exhibition in the world. It is a feast for sculpture lovers and photographers. There are over 100 works of artists from different countries and displayed in one of the most beautiful coastlines in the world.
