The Art Trail now in its 10th year has now expanded to include to include not only studios in Queanbeyan but also Braidwood. Meet the artists, tour the studios, watch demonstrations and add to your private collection with original artwork available for sale.

In addition this year keen art lovers can also take advantage of visiting and viewing the entries for the third annual Clearwater Sculpture Prize being held on the banks of the Queanbeyan River during the Queanbeyan River Festival on 28-30 October.

Get involved – Take a bus

The ever popular Art Trail Bus Tour is another way to enjoy the trail. Lucky ticket holders will travel the Art Trail in chauffeured comfort enjoying light refreshments and a picnic lunch. For just $30 per person, it really is amazing value and a lot of fun! This year because of the trail expansion two buses will be running one focusing on Queanbeyan and another tackling the cultural hub of Braidwood. Select your destination and get ready to soak up all the areas have to offer.

Tickets for both the Queanbeyan and Braidwood buses are available NOW from The Q Box Office.
