Tiny Towns region of Central Victoria is home to many talented artists, artisans and craftspeople. This inaugural Arts, Crafts and Artisans Trail over the ANZAC weekend, Saturday 23 April and Sunday 24 April is an opportunity to enjoy and purchase their work on display in small galleries, historic public buildings, restaurants and wineries.
You can start the trail at any point, with Dunolly as your central town. The Dunolly Historic Precinct Court House is hosting works from two artists, Mal Gilmour and Joe Jakitsch along with a display from Blind Dog Pottery and locally made quilts. There will be trail guides available from the court house. From Ballarat, you may meander from Possum Gully Fine Arts gallery, south of Maryborough, to Dunolly where there are several exhibitions and specialist shops plus a terrific bakery and restaurant. Then head further north to Bealiba and Inglewood.
Or, from Castlemaine, Maldon and Bendigo you may stop at the edgy Septembre Vintage gallery in Eddington before heading The to Dunolly. An alternative route from Bendigo will take you first to Inglewood, then Kingower (allowing time to visit Melville Caves in Kooyoora State park), before heading to Tarnagulla and Dunolly.
