Currumbin Beach, on the southern section of the Gold Coast, is paradise rediscovered. Pristine beaches, friendly locals, iconic Elephant Rock Lookout and, best of all, once a year it showcases world-class sculpture in abundance.

SWELL Sculpture Festival is Queensland's largest annual outdoor sculpture festival, celebrating 21 years of connecting people, art and place in September 2023. SWELL is a festival of experiences, a sensory symphony where the natural landscape of Currumbin Beach is transformed into a stunning sculpture gallery for all to enjoy.

Inviting engagement with public street art through sculpture, performance and conversations. SWELL is for everyone!

SWELL Sculpture Festival showcases 70+ large-scale sculptures along Currumbin Beach alongside a vibrant performing arts program created by nationally and internationally renowned artists.

What? An annual sculpture festival on the Gold Coast offering far more than sculptures alone thanks to the participation of artists in various activities.

Best viewing times: Only during the September festival. Sunrise on Currumbin Beach is beautiful at any time, and made even more spectacular by these artworks.
