For nine weeks in April 2013, larger-than-life koala
sculptures will be displayed on the Gold Coast showcasing
the wealth of artistic talent in the area plus drawing on national talent also. Swell Sculpture Festival is pleased to exhibit the first sculpture
for the inaugural Animals with Attitude Gold Coast Sculpture Trail in the Wallace Nicoll Park at the northern end in 2012.

The sculpture trail, spanning the length of

the city as locals and visitors discover the wonderfully and uniquely painted sculptures. A
