About the Trail

Since its inception 13 years ago the Surf Coast Arts Trail has become a key feature on our events calendar, showcasing the creativity and talent of artists living and working in the Surf Coast Shire.

A bigger and better Arts Trail than ever is planned this year with art lovers once again able to visit artist studios and galleries in person. More than 200 artists and 58 venues will be offering a diverse range of art forms including painting, glassware, ceramics, jewellery, sculpture and textiles.

Over two hundred artists and makers across 58 studios opened their doors to the public for 2 days in August across the shire. So much was on offer including everything from large scale metalwork, gold and silver smithing, painting, printmaking, textiles, illustration, ceramics, glass and more. Over 16,000 people explored a breadth of creativity from the hinterland to our coastal borders. Discover below.
