Set out along the Art Lives Here Trail in the Yarra Valley and Dandenong Ranges and discover a vibrant community of painters, sculptors, potters, jewellers, creators and curators of all persuasions.
Gallery glamour to rustic studios
More than just a food and wine haven, the region is home to a wide range of creative hotspots, from sleek modern museums and cultural centres to sculpture gardens, local galleries and artist studios.
See high profile Australian art from the second half of the twentieth century to the present day in spectacular surrounds at TarraWarra Museum of Art. Browse the collection of Indigenous and Oceanic art at Burrinja, and attend performances and changing exhibitions at Yarra Ranges Regional Museum.
Time your visit to coincide with Open Studios in April where you can talk with local artists while they work and get an insight into their creative life.
Into the mystic
Follow the art trail into the forest and discover mystical and magical sculptures hidden in the trees at William Ricketts Sanctuary and Bruno’s Art and Sculpture Garden in Marysville.
