12 amazing sculptures from Sculpture by the Sea 2016


We took a coastal walk amidst award-winning outdoor sculptures, and came back feeling decidedly inspired

While visiting this annual outdoor exhibition always makes for an enjoyable springtime day out, it is also a great way of determining which colours, materials, designs and styles of artwork catch your eye and suit your home’s style and character.

We paid a visit to Bondi recently, for this very reason. Here are 12 of our favourite sculptures from this year’s exhibition:
