The 2022 Surf Coast Arts Trail gives us the opportunity, once more, to discover the work of the Surf Coast’s thriving arts community. The easing of COVID-19 restrictions will allow us to meet artists in person in their studios and creative venues from the coast to the hinterland.  As is the Arts Trail tradition, there will also be venues dotted around the Shire where artists who don’t have home studios will be on hand to talk visitors through their artistic process, in the presence of their work.

Detailed Information on the Arts Trail coming 11 JULY!

Surf Coast Shire spans the traditional lands of the Wadawurrung and Eastern Maar people.

We acknowledge them as the Traditional Owners and Protectors of this place.

We acknowledge their ancestors who cared for the land, rivers and sea – and all of its creatures – for thousands of generations.

We pay our respects to elders past, present and future who continue on this path.
