Auburn Youth goes to Sculpture by the Sea

On Sunday 29 October, Auburn Youth traveled to Bondi Beach to visit the annual Sculpture by the Sea art exhibition. After arriving at Bondi Junction station, the group walked down to the beach for a lunch of burgers, fish and chips.

Then setting out towards Tamarama Beach, the youth group made their way along the coastal walk with their cameras taking in some of the unique and sometimes wacky artworks. With some of the youth still in shock from encountering mangoes in their recent HSC English exam, interest in studying the each artworks’ meaning was unsurprisingly reduced.

With the sun shining brightly, the free orange, strawberry and lime flavoured water offered by Sydney Water was a much welcome delight on the walk down the coast. A few Pokemon were even caught along the way as the group finally arrived at Tamarama where a dome of fish and a big life guards’ chair adorned the beach.

A few of the youth and leaders took their shoes offand went into the refreshing water while others stayed under the shade of the life guards’ tower. After a long wait for a bus back to Bondi Junction, the youth group enjoyed slurpees and ice creams in Westfield shopping centre. Someone even ended up buying a hobby horse as a souvenir for the day’s outing!
