One of the most popular beach activities is the Sandy Point Sandcastle Competition. The next event is on Saturday 29th December 2018.
The event is generally held twice every year, once during Easter school holidays and once during the Christmas school holidays, over 200 people, mostly family groups, children and youths participate in this friendly, happy competition. The competition is held on the main beach near the surf lifesaving club. Prizes are awarded for the best sandcastles.
A Sausage Sizzle will also be held at the start of the beach track for hungry sandcastle builders after the event.
Entry fees are only $1 per person. Prizes are sponsored by the Sandy Point Community Group (SPCG) and by local businesses.
