Off The Beaten Track
As we say locally, “go up the hill”, to Dorrigo where they have a great variety
of attractions happening in town and at the Rainforest Centre. Explore some of the studios & galleries in the Shire that are off the beaten track but  worth a look (Maps can also be found on the website).

Opening Ceremony
The Arts Week opening ceremony will take place in Urunga on the 10th from 10.30am. The ceremony will be a memorable occasion with the unveiling of David Bromley’s extraordinary mural
depicting local personalities.

Support Local
The local artists, musicians, performers, writers and everyone involved in the creative side of life in Bellingen Shire have all made a huge effort to make this week a reality so please do support your local artist during the festival!
