Sydneys’ Sculpture by the sea

With a little Brisbane city fever and Summer fast approaching I was well in need of a visit home to Sydney – a stay with my dear friend Mon was in order. I couldn’t think of a nicer way to catch up than a walk along the coastline; the added bonus being a chance to reflect on the great expanse of ocean that surrounds and defines my childhood home.

The timing couldn’t of been better: with tempting Summeresque temperatures and the opportunity to soak up an exhibition known as Sculpture by the Sea. The art display sits jauntily along a 2km stretch of sandstone cliff and has been running for 15 years; aiming to connect the general public with the incredibly dramatic coastline – through art.

Even if you’re not a modern art lover or understand half of the sentiment behind the installations, the location and atmosphere will compensate for any artistic confusion. We particularly loved a piece constructed of bamboo and natural turbines that is positioned to catch the breeze, so that with the changing wind a beautiful natural song hums from the cliff tops.

If you happen to be in Sydney the exhibition is on until November 4th. It’s definitely good for the soul and absolutely gratis.
