Sunshine Coast Sandcastle Competition

Perfect weather conditions brought out a large crowd of curious spectators and over twenty teams of creative sand architects in this year’s Sunshine Coast Sandcastle Competition. The annual competition is held each year at Davis Bay Beach, where the broad and expansive sandbar at low tide provides a perfect canvas for this community event.

While the event draws eager participants of all ages, this is a very serious competition. Local and imported teams, armed with buckets, misters and complex plans vie to see who will win the coveted bragging rights for the next year.

This one was my favourite – a complex , multi-tiered undertaking, with its moat linking to the incoming tide and filling, just as the judges arrived. Ahh… the advantage of a little local knowledge always helps.
