What inspires you? Is it a beautiful scene in the bush, a quiet country lane, a peaceful lake or a rolling surf? What about the wonder of nature or the magnificent splendour of a special sunset? Inspiration comes in many forms and unexpected places. People are inspirational in so many ways too. Their creativity or the ability to overcome adversity and those that encourage and support them to do it.

This year our Arcadian Artists Trail and Exhibition will inspire and encourage you as you travel through the rural countryside of Galston, Dural, Arcadia and Berrilee. Not only will 50 artists and artisans motivate you to cast off the dreary colours of the world but will give you the opportunity to take with you some of the unique things they have offer. Once again Warrah will be represented at one of our 8 venues. They indeed are an inspiration.

The sights, sounds and smells of the bush will entice you to visit different studios on the trail. The settings are just delightful. Each venue will exhibit a range of goods from a variety of artists and a program of demonstrations is available for those who want to ‘see how it’s done’.

Food is always important on a day out, and to help you enjoy your day we have included coffee and food vans at many of our sites. The local eateries are also geared up for the influx of visitors to the area over the weekend. Some of the properties have rolling lawns where you can sit with a picnic and sip a glass of wine on a picnic rug.

Studios open at 9.00am on Saturday and Sunday and close at 5.00pm. There is no charge. An information booth is set up at Galston outside our sponsor, the Bendigo Bank. Follow the signs and arrows to the studios or hop on line for a map. Our website is You will be inspired.
