Will there be Beach bums at Broulee this new years eve !! This year, to fit in with the tide, it’s a little earlier than usual. The New Years Eve Sandcastle Competition at Nth Broulee Beach is on again. A great annual family contest; it is always a hoot for "artists" and audience. Hosted by the Broulee/Mossy Point Community Association the sandcastle competition is a wonderful community event. Registration starts at 12.30 and the competition runs from 2-3pm. There are three categories – open sandcastles, open sand sculptures and juniors – and lots of prizes donated by local businesses. Five person limit per team and only normal beach gear (small plastic toys) allowed.
The annual Broulee Sand Modelling Competition
When: 31st Dec 2016 2:00pm-3:00pm
Where: North Broulee Beach, Coronation Drive Broulee Cost: $5 with up to five people per entry “It’s always a hoot,” said newly anointed sandcastle supremo John Hicks of the Broulee Mossy Point Community Association. “Where else can you see opera houses, mermaids, big feet and beach bums mingling on the beach and we’ve got a heap of prizes generously donated by local businesses for our three categories of “sculpture, sandcastle and junior”. “Even the tide is playing its part by sensibly agreeing to be low early in the afternoon for the event so there will be plenty of firm wet sand for the modellers" The Broulee Sand Modelling Competition is held at North Broulee Beach on New Year's Eve every year. It is a great afternoon out for people of all ages, which attracts around 90 entries with over 200 competitors and an estimated 1800 spectators.
Prizes for the event are donated by local businesses, and known artists act as judges for the competition.
All funds go towards towards projects run by the Broulee Mossy Point Association.
