What can you do when you wake up to 40*C heat?
Go to the beach where you’ll be burnt to a crisp? During the Sydney Festival you can go to a sandless, cool and refreshing Beach under the shade of the sandstone cutting at Barangaroo. The 800 mm deep water is an installation made from 1.1 million refreshing white recycled polyethylene balls. Snarkitecture, a New York-based art and architecture collaborative practice are the brains and creative force behind this major free event. Last year there was Ephemeral City which was in the same location and very hard to beat, but this is really fun and you can really throw yourself into it and find it very hard to get out. Whilst there are no life savers there are a lot of helping hands and selfies galore.
This Australian exclusive event is free for all ages between 10:00am – 5:00pm Tuesdays to Sundays (closed Mondays). Last admission for free entry is at 3:30pm. On until 29 January 2017.
