This year, 450,000 visitors are expected over the 18-day exhibition that began this week.
Sculpture by the Sea at Bondi Beach transforms more than a mile of the famous coast into a seaside museum, featuring more than 100 works of art by artists from Australia and 20 other countries.

The exhibition began in 1997 as a one-day event showing 64 sculptures.
Now in its 22nd year, the exhibit gets more popular each year and is one of Sydney’s most-photographed events.
