One of the most popular beach activities each year is the Sandy Point Sandcastle Competition.
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 is 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.
December 2019 Sandcastle competition
Sandcastles, sea creatures, cars, mermaids, a lego man, a horse, a chook and a Nipper. All created out of sand on the Sandy Point beach on Saturday morning for the annual Sandcastle Competition. A great turnout and a wonderful time for all. The sausage sizzle afterwards was pretty good too! See our album of photos of this great event on our Facebook page.
