Welcome!

Immerse yourself in the creative environment of the Southern Highlands, New South Wales and join us for the annual Arts Festival (SHAF) all through November!


The Highlands is renowned for its strong community of artists, drawn to the area for the fresh air, natural beauty and lifestyle which provide the perfect environment to inspire creativity.
 
Once again SHAF’s feature event is the annual Southern Highlands Art Studio Trail, when artists open their studio doors and allow visitors inside to explore their creative habitats across the first two weekends of November.

THE ART STUDIO TRAIL IS ON OVER THE WEEKENDS OF THE 5/6 AND 12/13 OF NOVEMBER FROM 10AM - 5PM... MAKE SURE TO KEEP THESE WEEKENDS CLEAR FOR A WONDERFUL ARTISTIC EXPERIENCE OF THE HIGHLANDS!

This year 35 studio doors are opening for the Art Studio Trail, so visitors will be able to meet the artists, see their work in the place it was created and purchase directly from the studio door.

With many studios also featuring works of other local artists, there promises to be something for everyone.

Explore and enjoy the beauty of the Highlands and be prepared for an adventure as you travel on the back roads of the Shire from one Open Studio to another!

AND THE FESTIVAL CONTINUES THROUGHOUT NOVEMBER WITH A PROGRAM OF EXHIBITIONS, ART SHOWS, CONCERTS, THEATRE, CINEMA AND WORKSHOPS.


Surround yourself with beauty and inspiration…
