A sand art sculpture exhibition in the countryside, open for a limited time only.

Enjoy a fun and interactive sand sculpture exhibition held on the grounds of the historic Dromkeen Homestead in Riddells Creek, less than an hours’ drive from Melbourne.

This great family day out features sand sculptures of unicorns, fairies, goblins and griffins from sculpture artists from around the world. It even includes a 30 tonne gravity-defying sculpture – an amazing feat!

Over 300 tonnes of sand have been used to created this ‘enchanted forest’. The skills of these artists from Russia, Canada, The Netherlands, Spain, Ireland, Poland, Czech Republic, Portugal, Belgium and Italy will leave you absolutely spellbound.

There’s also a giant ‘magic sand pit’ that children love playing in. Plus for a small additional fee, kids can use a designated ‘activity area’ to make their own colourful sand bottles and other fun activities.

Cost: $15 adults (13 yrs above) | $7 kids (4-12 yrs). Under 3 are free.
Open Wednesday – Sunday from 10.30-5.00pm

NOTE: There’s refreshments and snacks available on site.
