Sand Sculpting Australia - Land of Imagination


Frankston Waterfront
510N Nepean Highway
Frankston 3199

From Boxing Day 2016, childhood dreams and fantasies will come alive in an instant! Explore fanciful lands of dinosaurs and dragons, sea creatures and spaceships, pirates and princesses - all brought to life with over 3,500 tonnes of sand in our wildest, most whimsical and extraordinary sand sculpting exhibition to date, ’Lands of Imagination’. 

In a larger than life experience, visitors will walk amongst towering giants, journey through Candy Land into Gingerbread village, turn back time and join our dinosaurs in prehistoric valley, explore the enchanted forest and head down the rabbit hole to Wonderland.

In a total escape from reality, our spectacular life sized sculptures carved by 21 international and Australian sand sculptors will be sure to amaze all ages. You can dial up the fun with integrated childrens activities including sand sculpting workshops, sand art and bottles, our interactive sand sculpture, sandsational play pit, facepainting and more!
