Southern Highlands ARTStrail 2022


In November 2022, over 80 artists will be exhibiting in 51 studios and 8 Galleries across the Southern Highlands.

Don’t miss this once-a-year chance to wander the Southern Highlands experiencing the work of local creatives, meeting artists in their studios, seeing where and how they create their work… and buy something wonderful for yourself or a friend!

Some studios will have eftpos, but many will only be able to accept cash payments, so come prepared! Enjoy rest and respite at participating gallery cafes or explore the diverse food and drink offerings the Highlands is known for – including cafes, fine dining, gourmet picnics, breweries and cellar doors.

Large and small ARTS Trail signs and arrows will assist you in finding your way to the entrance to each studio. All event information will be online from late September, and print maps will be available closer to the event from the Welcome Centre at Destination Southern Highlands, 62-70 Main Street, Mittagong.

We’ll see you there!
