There are also studios further afield that offer the opportunity to discover the scenic landscapes surrounding charming country roads that wind their way through rural and bush landscapes. A range of art forms can be found along the trail, including sculpture, painting, ceramics, textile and wearable art, mosaics, weaving, felting, illustration, and photography.
