TALENTED, creative and eager sand sculptors from around the world will descend on Windsor to construct their most innovative and realistic sand sculptures yet.

The sand sculptors will arrive on January 10 to vie for the top title in the second Hawkesbury International Sand Sculpting Championship.

Last year the competition attracted thousands of people from across Australia.

The sculptors come from countries around the world including the Netherlands, Czech Republic, Britain and the US, as well as from Tasmania, Victoria and NSW.

Between them, the sculptors have won many titles at competitions and championships.

Some have been carving for more than 30 years, while others are new to the world of sand sculpting and this will be their first experience in a competition.

Each sculptor in the competition will have 20 tonnes of sand to work with as they carve their interpretation of this year’s theme — Fairytales and Fables — over a period of four days starting on January 10.

The event will be open to the public from 10am to 7pm each day from January 10, providing the perfect opportunity to see these incredibly talented sculptors as they showcase their work.

Tickets: $14 for adults, $6 for children aged three to 12 (under 3 are free), $30 for a family (two adults and two children). There are also special rates for groups of 20 or more.
