Animalia In Sand at Boneo Discovery Park, Fingal


Animalia in Sand at Boneo Discovery Park brings to life the much-loved classic children’s book by Graeme Base through 26 giant sand sculptures created by some of the world’s most renowned sand sculptors. See the sculptures come alive through our innovative sand and screen immersive experience.

Graeme Base created the alliterative animal alphabet which has become a family favourite for over 30 years. Animalia features incredibly detailed and creative descriptions and whimsies of wildlife from all corners of the globe, alongside hidden images for readers to discover. Over 3,500 tonnes of sand has been transformed into all our favourite Animalia characters; from Ingenious Iguanas to Vaudeville Ventriloquist Vultures. Fifteen award-winning sculptors from around the globe have worked for over 450 hours collectively to bring the exhibition to life along the wetlands and lush garden pathways.

With a sand play pit, activity tent, sand sculpting workshops, face painting and pedal boats there is plenty of things to keep our youngest visitors happy.

The Kid’s Zone also has a kiosk with snacks and drinks to enjoy. Lovely and grassy, it’s the perfect spot to have a picnic and let the kids play.

Boneo Discovery Park is Open Daily 10am – 5pm.
