The Bathurst Arts Trail is a collective of artists throughout the Bathurst region who open their galleries and studios to visitors on the first weekend of each month.
Our Arts Trail Open Weekends offer a fabulous opportunity to meet all our local artists, to see their works and hear their stories.
Our painters, potters, photographers, sculptors and printmakers look forward to welcoming you and showcase their incredible works and studios.
Look for our Golden flags which indicates a Studio entrance.
