The International Sand Sculpting Championship is coming to Bella Vista Farm Park.
It starts on Boxing Day 2015 and runs for a month.
The Hills mayor Michelle Byrne said 360 tonnes of sand would be transformed into ‘‘intricate and ornate sculptures that have to be seen to be believed”.
“This is something new and exciting for The Sydney Hills,’’ she said.
While artists sculpt, kids can learn about sand sculpting. There will also be other family activities lined up.
