Sandy Christmas

PERTH can’t do snow for Christmas, but it does have 100 tons of sand painstakingly carved into intricate Christmas scenes at Elizabeth Quay this month.

Perth-based sand artist Jenny Rossen is internationally renowned for her sculptures, having won multiple world championship sandcastle events over the past 23 years.

For the past month she’s led a team of five of the world’s best sand artists to create a five-metre tall Christmas sand sculpture, including a nativity scene carved in the style of the old masters on one side, and on the other side a whimsical sandy village with Father Christmas, reindeer, snowpeople, and the Gingerbread Man.

It’s free to see and lights up at night,  and will be at Elizabeth Quay until January 2 when all the sand gets trucked back out again.
