Stay with Rocks Resort for SWELL Sculpture Festival 2019
If there’s something to get excited about this spring it’s the return of SWELL Sculpture Festival: the Gold Coast’s nationally renowned annual art festival which transforms Currumbin Beach into a fascinating large-scale art exhibition for ten unmissable days.
SWELL takes place only once a year each spring and is undoubtedly the best time to visit Currumbin on the Gold Coast, and if you’re just as excited as we are for its 17th annual event, make sure to be as close to this year’s spectacle as possible with our Currumbin Beach accommodation.
Situated on Pacific Parade, just footsteps from Currumbin Beach, Rocks Resort offers your ideal stay during SWELL Sculpture Festival 2019, where our simple choice of 1 and 2 Bedroom Apartments will put you seconds away from all the festivity with unmatched views to enjoy over the beach.
The 17th SWELL Sculpture Festival is all set for its impressive display yet - don't miss it when it returns this September.
Free to enjoy for all ages, SWELL Sculpture Festival is Queensland’s largest public art exhibition that brings Currumbin Beach - one of Australia’s most spectacular beaches - to life each spring.
Set between two iconic headlands and decorating the beach with up to 50 large and small-scale sculptures, Currumbin Beach becomes a unique sight during SWELL, which has grown to attract a yearly average of 275,000 visitors.
SWELL Sculpture Festival - established in 2002 - is now one of the Gold Coast’s most recognisable events, which showcases the work of both national and international artists, promoting free expression, celebrating creativity and bringing together people, art and nature for ten enriching days on picturesque Currumbin Beach.
This year, SWELL Sculpture Festival 2019 will spotlight brand new sculptures along with an exciting program of guided twilight walks, artist talks and workshops. Be on Currumbin Beach for the full 10-day festival to marvel at a collection of thought-provoking concepts and interactive installations on the sand, which will arrive hand-in-hand with a vibrant atmosphere to experience both day and night.
Bring the kids along for weekend workshops including Wire Sculptures with Sydney artist Barbara Licha and Clay Turtles with Monte Lupo Arts, and join in a number of free inspirational talks with this year’s featured artists. If you’re keen to learn more about the sculptures, this year’s Guided Twilight Sculpture Walk will offer an engaging tour by twilight with enlightening insights to move and stir.
SWELL Sculpture Festival returns in 2019 for its seventeenth annual event from September 13 to September 22.
