The Kunmurri (meaning Rainbow Serpent) Art Trail is a detailed map tour that is collated and printed in an A6 booklet by Vast Arts as part of our mission to create opportunities for artists and make the arts a visible and viable part of the community. It gives tourists, visitors and locals a comprehensive guide to the region’s art and cultural experiences. This site supports the Art Trail and offers you the information, maps, contact details and images that are in the booklet where ever, when ever you need them - accessible on your PC, laptop, tablet or phone.
This is the only guide of its kind for this unique and vast region. Inside you will find details of sites of cultural significance; from galleries in town to the artists studio out on a isolated property. There are maps, contact details and information—all the art appreciator could want to enjoy art in the outback.
Whilst every effort is made to provide up to date and accurate information, it is recommended to contact artists and other sites ahead of time to ensure access is available. Private studios are generally open by appointment.
There is also a section in the Art Trail featuring artists who live, work and create in this region though have no studio available for visitors. These artists welcome you to contact them if you would like to see more of their work and many have websites and other outlets in the region.
Come to the Outback and explore this unique area of Queensland from which our artists draw their inspiration.
