Road Tip | The Tiny Town Arts Trail Is On This Weekend

By James Shackell
20th Apr 2018


We’re kicking off a new series this weekend. Every Saturday we’re going to bring you a regional event you should check out in Victoria. Something delicious or artistic or Insta-worthy or just kinda weird. Think of them as road trip tips, or ‘Road Tips’ if you will (okay, it’s a working title).

This weekend we’ve got a particularly good one. The Tiny Town Arts Trail is back for another year, this time spread across two weekends—21 & 22 April and 28 & 29 April.

If you haven’t heard of this one before, the numbers tell it best: 10 country towns, 25 venues (including galleries, cafes, and wineries, courthouses, private homes and railway stations) and 40+ artists.

It’s basically one giant celebration of the Goldfields region—its food, its culture, its fashion and history and knick-knacks and its bakery pies. Go we hope there are bakery pies...

The trail runs across 10 towns, including Maryborough, Newstead, Clunes, Talbot, Eddington, Bealiba and Dunolly. No worries if you haven’t been there before—in fact that’s kind of the point. Get out of town, load the car with CCs, then check out regional artists, galleries, market pop-ups, craft sessions and historic gardens. For a full run-down, click here.

Stay tuned for next week’s Road Tip. We promise we’ll find a better name soon.
