Sand Sculpting Australia is excited to announce we have a new home on the Mornington Peninsula

We are moving to a brand new home at Boneo Maze on the Mornington Peninsula. Opening December 2018 

Boneo Maze takes you on a journey through 27 acres of wetlands and gardens, scattered with activities, art and adventure.

We are thrilled to announce that Sand Sculpting Australia will be taking up permanent residence at Boneo Maze this December. The Sand Sculpting exhibition will sit along side our other established attractions such as mini golf, mazes, wetlands, adventure zone, lanterns and a successful calendar of festivals and events.

With over 15 acres of natural wetlands and bushland we are home to stunning native wildlife that you may spot throughout your walks or at the bird hide lookout overlooking King Lake.

With so much to see and do it is easy to spend an entire day with us, so bring your own picnic to enjoy in our gardens or enjoy something at our licensed lakeside cafe.
