Southern Highlands ARTS Trail

Wingecarribee Shire Council is calling for applications from artists, studios and galleries for this year’s Southern Highlands Arts Trail.

The Arts Trail gives the public a rare opportunity to meet the makers, to see their work in the environment within which it was created and to buy direct from the studio door.

The 2021 Southern Highlands Arts Trail will run over the weekends of 6 and 7 and 13 and 14 November.
