Lithgow Arts Trail Part II | 2022

The first weekend was a great success! Make sure to go and visit those you missed or go again to those you liked!

12 & 13 November, 2022 10 a.m. to 4 p.m
Portland, Lithgow, Hartley & Kanimbla.


Local artists open their studios just once a year.

See them in action and enjoy two days of eclectic creativity.

To travel the Lithgow Arts Trail is to discover beauty in many forms and places. You can start at the eastern (Kanimbla/ Little Hartley)point or the western (Portland) end on the map. Either way, traveling through the historic city of Lithgow, you’ll be experiencing the beautiful hills and valleys, rolling farmlands, dramatic escarpments, bushlands, and the historic sites, indigenous and European, in this ancient valley.

The studios of the Trail Artists are as varied and as beautiful as the landscape. From backyard sheds and workshops to studios sitting on hilltops and in wondrous gardens, through fabulous art galleries, to historic industrial factories housing ceramic and metal artists and painters, you’ll be amazed by the range and variety of beautiful artworks.
