Now it its third year, the event will run over a six-day period. The town and shops become the gallery and visitors are invited to follow the exhibition trail.

It includes established galleries, artists’ studios, pop-up galleries and public art. Now as it grows into a larger event, this year organisers have included a series of ticketed events, art workshops, an architectural projection and a Celebrate Murwillumbah Street Party. Guided tours called MATours are now also available, which organisers expect will create a boom for local businesses, with 3,000 people expected to attend MAT.

Visitors are encouraged to book their tickets for the events, workshops and tours or just take a drive and walk the trail free of charge. Murwillumbah Art Trail runs from 25 till 30 May.
