Gympie Region Studio Trails 2024

Gympie Region Studio Trails is an annual initiative of Gympie Regional Gallery to support the cultural and economic development of the local creative sector in the Gympie region. Studio Trails gives visual artists, artisans, heritage workers and designers an opportunity to work as part of a network to share their passion across the region and beyond.

Dates and Routes

For Studio Trails 2024, the event will be divided into four separate trails, organised by easy driving routes. Trails will be organised generally by East, West, North, and South, but will be flexible until final studios are confirmed. Artists are encouraged to nominate for as many dates as they prefer.

Each Trail will open for one weekend from 10am – 4pm, however central Gympie will be open for all four weekends.

Artists located in central Gympie are particularly encouraged to nominate for multiple weekends.
