Two German tourists have transformed sand to art on Town Beach.
Elizabeth Nelgen and Dario Geiger spent Friday on the popular main beach at Port Macquarie turning sand into art forms
And it was turning heads on the beach.
The dramatic forms were created throughout the day, Dario said.
“We had no idea how long we were taking to the create the artworks but some people at the cafe came over and told us they had been watching us work throughout the morning,” he said.
“We got lots of feedback from people with plenty of positive comments.
“Once we had finished, people just looked at how amazing it was.
“But it was quite fun.”
Prior to arriving in Australia six weeks ago, the couple were in New Zealand when they decided to create a giant sandcastle.
“So now we just create whatever pops into our heads,” he said.
The couple’s visit to Australia is part of a two year round the world trip.
The Australian leg started in Melbourne and will end in Cairns before they will leave for Indonesia and Malaysia.
They plan a return to Australia in June where they hope to secure some work in Sydney. Dario is a chef while Elizabeth is an architect.
They couple said they ‘dropped into Port Macquarie’ because it was ‘quite a nice place’.
They visited the Koala Hospital and met some koalas, were ‘a bit afraid of the snakes’ but also thought kangaroos looked ‘quite funny’.
