The Sunshine Coast Satellite Reef is part of the worldwide Crochet Coral Reef Project created by the Institute for Figuring and directors Christine and Margaret Wertheim.

The program was launched on World Environment Day 5 June 2014 at the Sunshine Coast University and has attracted hundreds of community members together with art and science in the collaborative making of crochet coral forms to create the Sunshine Coast Satellite Reef.

Explore one of the most ambitious creative collaborations in the Sunshine Coast region. Hundreds of entries have flooded in from all around Australia contributing to this magnificent installation.

Sculptural sea birds and sea creatures by artist Tony Rice along with underwater coral photography of local reefs complement this inspirational exhibition.

The Crochet Coral Reef is a response to the devastation of living reefs due to global warming and ocean acidification while celebrating the intersection of higher geometry and feminine handicraft.
