Murwillumbah Arts Trail

10 – 11 May, 2024

This bi-annual event immerses visitors in the luscious landscapes of Northern NSW, where the coast meets the river and hinterland, unveiling hidden gems and lesser-known paths.

The Trail presents a rare opportunity for the public to venture into artists’ studios, historic halls, and pop-up galleries scattered across quaint villages. The event celebrates a wide spectrum of art forms, spanning from traditional painting and printmaking to intricate jewellery, imposing sculptures, finely crafted glassworks, and dazzling mosaics. It offers an excellent platform for art enthusiasts, collectors, fellow creators or curious minds to gain insights into the artistic process, discover emerging talents, and avail studio sales.

Why not ride around town and use the Rail Trail to connect to smaller villages of Stokers Siding?
