Sand Art Competition

A Sand Art competition sponsored by The Informer and Richardsons Real Estate Cooks Beach will take place during the Saturday of Labour Weekend. The event will be open to a variety of age groups, with prizes for all categories including major cash prizes for adult and junior divisions.  Judges will be announced in March, with entries hoped to be attracted far and wide, including at least one international sand artist. The competition will be held at Cooks Beach in the vicinity of the Banks Street Reserve. A carnival will take place at the reserve during the competition, with stalls, food and live entertainment. A shuttle service between Ferry Landing and Cooks Beach will be available on the day.

A meeting of peoples, a mixing of cultures,
a blending of heritage, a sharing of future
