Sand Sculpting Australia and Boneo Discovery Park presents Animalia in Sand – the world’s first sand sculpting exhibition with augmented reality technology.

Animalia in Sand brings to life the much-loved classic children’s book by Graeme Base through 26 giant sand sculptures created by some of the world’s most renowned sand sculptors.

See the sculptures come alive through this innovative sand and screen immersive experience. Set inside this magical outdoor space to discover art, nature and play, Boneo Discovery Park’s new exhibit will appeal to families and visitors of all ages.

Over 3,500 tonnes of sand has been transformed into all of your favourite Animalia characters; from Ingenious Iguanas to Vaudeville Ventriloquist Vultures. Fifteen award-winning sculptors from around the globe have worked for over 450 hours collectively to bring the exhibition to life along the wetlands and lush garden pathways.

The sand sculpting area will also feature sand art tables, workshops with sand sculpting sand and a mini diggers play pit. There’s also pedal boats, a snack bar kiosk and plenty of shady, grassy picnic spots for visitors to enjoy.

ANIMALIA In Sand runs from 14 December 2019 to 30 April 2020.
