More than 100 works of art are peppering the sea view at Sydney's Bondi Beach, as part of the annual Sculptures by the Sea event.
Artists from 27 countries are taking part in the exhibition, now in its 11th year.
Visitors may struggle to work out some exhibits, like this scuplture containing a digital print of the headland.
Some artists have relied on more traditional Australian imagery to make their point.
The A$30,000 (£13,375) prize for best sculpture went to Sydney artist David Horton for his metal work, Yesternight.
Over the next three weeks 500,000 art-lovers are expected to visit the event - where they will be treated to giant ants devouring cars, among other things.
