The annual Sculpture by the Sea exhibition in Sydney features dozens of sculptures on Bondi and Tamarama beaches and along the coastal path between them.

The free outdoor exhibition, now in its 18th year, stretches for 2km along the coastline and includes work by artists from 16 countries.

It runs from 23 October to 9 November 2014. IBTimesUK presents a picture gallery of some of the sculptures.
