Strand Ephemera began in 2001 and has become a much-loved biennial exhibition. The event has grown over the years to be celebrated not only locally, but to be an outdoor sculpture exhibition of state and national significance.

Strand Ephemera attracts over 100,000 visitors across the 10-day festival and offers a $10,000 award for Artistic Excellence, $1,000 award for People’s Choice Award, and a variety of supporting public programs.

Strand Ephemera is organised by Townsville City Galleries and assisted by a volunteer task force.
