Find Art Trail Events
BunGeo is home to a flourishing arts community – a talented group of artists who draw inspiration from the region’s beautiful natural surroundings. You can find them and their art along with a number of art trails throughout BunGeo.
Travel through BunGeo’s green countryside or along the coast and you’ll quickly realise that art is all around you. It’s something that the region’s artists have realised, too. Drawing upon the sights and scenery of Australia’s South West, they create stunning paintings, sculptures and artisan products that reflect the land around them. For an insight into the practices of BunGeo’s diverse range of artists and to chance upon unique, interesting and thought-provoking works, try one of these art trails.
