Currumbin Swell Festival | Around my neighbourhood


A few weeks ago the annual Swell Festival was on at Currumbin Beach on the Gold Coast.  They usually _MG_6884have a very eclectic mix of “art” for your perusal.  Entry of course is free as its on the beach so a wander around is an interesting adventure.

I am not sure of the titles of the art I saw, I was on a mission to try and photograph as many as I could before the crowds came and as it was at dusk, before the sun set.  I did go a couple of times as there were quite a few to get around.

Below is a gallery of some of the interesting entries. Open for your own interpretation.

  1. What a fabulous event! I like the idea of an exhibition or art installation being in such an open space, especially since several of the pieces either seem connected to the landscape through material or form or else appear to take their inspiration from the ocean. Your photographs are lovely and make me wish I could go and see for myself.

    • Arent they just. They are done by different artists from different places, not just the Gold Coast and I think they do a circuit and go to other exhibitions also. This year’s I thought were really outstanding 🙂

  11. What a great idea so people get a chance to appreciate it more. Some people are not so keen on taking a peek at museums.

    • It is Bebs isnt it. It doesnt cost anything to look at and sometimes interact with different pieces. It only costs for the booklet that lets you know who did what… of course I didnt get that otherwise I might have been more informative lol 🙂
