Sand in the City

15 December 2018 to 19 May 2019

Calling all beachcombers…
This summer, the beach comes to the National Wool Museum with Sand in the City – a playful, sand-filled, interactive installation exploring Geelong and the Surf Coast’s legendary beaches.

From 15 December 2018 – 19 May 2019, kids of all ages will be able to create sandcastles, sculptures and scenes from their imaginations or build their own beach landmarks using over 1.8 tonnes of sand and 300,000 LEGO® bricks!

Sand in the City is all about creativity, fun and play, with two ‘hands-in’ augmented reality sandboxes, a giant 2 metre high sandcastle, and models of some of the coastline’s much-loved landmarks, created by LEGO® certified builder Ryan McNaught set to entertain kids for hours.

Surrounding the interactive displays are stories and snapshots of Geelong and the Surf Coast’s shimmering coastline, with a captivating film from local documentary maker Glenn Hurst, a 3D Mural by Melbourne artist, Scott Jansen, plus Geelong’s famous bollards made from LEGO® and a relaxing reading space illustrated by much loved Australian author, Allison Lester, which will provide moments of calm, in amongst all the excitement! 

Sand in the City is a not to be missed summer experience, which will reveal the diversity and varied ways in which Australians identify with and experience the beach. 

Happening only at the National Wool Museum.
