Aladdin and The Arabian Tales - Sand Sculpting Australia - Info - Melbourne

Sand Sculpting Australia is back this year on the Frankston Waterfront with a new theme - Aladdin and The Arabian Tales . Over 3,500 tonnes of brickie’s loam sand has been masterfully transformed into life sized sand sculptures by the world’s best artists, who have come together to tell the tales of Aladdin, Sinbad the Sailor, and Ali Baba and the forty thieves.

The product of 20 sculptors, 30 days and over 5,000 carving hours, this exhibition continues in its tradition of delivering something bigger and better every year!

This summer, you’ll be transported back in time to explore the ancient and ever-so-magical stories of the 1001 Arabian Nights, made completely from sand. You can see Aladdin fall in love with Princess Jasmine and trick the Genie of the Lamp with his three wishes.

Integrated with the sand sculptures will be a fun range of themed activities for children; from hands on sand sculptor workshops, sand art and craft, to themed face painting and the interactive family game zone, there is plenty to explore.

Tickets for the event are now on sale, with the exhibition opening up early for an all-inclusive family Christmas festival. Running from 16th to the 24th December, Santa’s Sand Land is the quintessential Australian summer-take on the holidays.

With the Christmas spectacular set to include live stage shows, roving performances, a meet a greet with Santa, arts and craft, plus more - the waterfront is the ultimate outdoor playground this Christmas.
