SWELL Sculpture Festival 2021

Spring’s must-attend Gold Coast event for all the family 

SWELL Sculpture Festival is back for its 19th event, and you can relax just minutes away from Currumbin with our Palm Beach accommodation at Royal Palm.

Yet to experience SWELL Festival? It’s one of the Gold Coast’s most attended annual events (attracting over 250,000 visitors each year), which transforms Currumbin Beach Gold Coast into a giant outdoor art gallery of eye-catching sculptures from local, national and international artists.

It’s FREE to attend, and this year it’s celebrating 19 years!

Head to Currumbin Beach during the 10-day festival to marvel at over 65 contemporary sculptures – some small, some large, but all equally thought-provoking and fascinating.

There will also be more to see at the SWELL Smalls Gallery at Dust Temple, plus guided twilight walks, artist talks and artist-led workshops for budding artists and sculptors. The full program is set to release this month (July)!

For all ages, SWELL Sculpture Festival 2021 is not to be missed – FREE to attend from September 10 to September 19.
