UPCOMING HIGHLIGHTS

World Class Sand Sculpturer "Dennis Massoud"

Sand sculpture is a rare and intricate art form that takes sand and water and breathes it to life with seemingly impossible beauty. Sand In Your Eyes is the longest running Australian sand sculpting company. It was formed by Master sculptor Dennis Massoud more than 20 years ago. The Sand In Your Eyes team are all master sand sculptors and world champions in their field who have experience in a large number of events held across Australia and overseas. Crowds are absolutely stunned by the detail and creativity of our sand sculptures. The most common questions asked are “How can you do that ?” and “Is it just sand ?” Yes it is just sand and a lifetime of skill and experience.
