Bellingen Shire Arts Trail Weekend – 10 to 12 November 2023

The inaugural 2023 Arts Trail Weekend was a great success throughout the shire. Visitation numbers to galleries and studios were high and sales good.  

A big thank you to all the artists who participated and to the sponsors who supported it.   

2024 is under discussion already!

This Arts Trail Weekend presents a wonderful opportunity to invite friends and fellow artists to explore the beautiful Bellingen Shire whilst meeting and talking to the creative people who make it such an inspiring place.

The Trail takes you from historic Dorrigo and the Rainforest Centre gallery via the heritage town of Bellingen in its lush green valley, to the laid-back coast, Raleigh and Urunga, or, do it vice versa.

In 2023, 26 venues – galleries, studios, workshops were open and over 50 artists were there to chat with. It is a truly unique opportunity to meet the artists who usually hide away in their studios and to possibly purchase some of their work.
