We had fun looking at all the cool art work, super busy. Not much sitting room if you wanted to sit and relax as it was packed. Definitely a warm day for a nice swim.

This is an annual event that takes place on the foreshore of Cottesloe Beach. Local and worldwide artists design their sculptures and install them on the beach. This years show was extremely good and would recommend it highly. Many interesting and quirky pieces of art.

Beautiful sandy beach with plenty of space to spread out. Tends to be windy so wear plenty of sunscreen to avoid turning lobster! Some good surfing days.

At the moment a place for modern art lovers, more than for beach goers. Luckily it was a cloudy day when I visited with friends, as there is little shade and the sun can be hard at Cottesloe. Even though it was a Thursday there...More
