Hub of inspired creativity
Follow the white flags along the trail

The creative hub, Byron Arts and Industry Estate lies 3 kms to the west of Byron Bay township. The estate houses 23 art galleries, showrooms and studios, which together form the Byron Arts Trail. You will find every style of art here from ceramics to woodwork, jewellery to metalwork. Each gallery is marked with a distinctive white flag, which dot the Arts and Industry Estate.

Out There Sculpture Garden

For those just wishing to browse, I recommend visiting the website for the map (or pick up a pocket guide booklet when you get there) and work your way around the warehouse lined streets. Remember, every style of art imaginable is represented here and you might be more than tempted to purchase some of the unique pieces available.

Farrell Glass Design

Be sure to stop off at Farrell Glass Design to watch Matthew create hand-blown glass. A bit further along Acacia St, be inspired by the creative garden pieces at Out There Garden Sculptures. Visit Zakay Glass Gallery, filled with Sacred Geometry where you will be dazzled by the play of light through glass. Make your way to the rear of the complex (18 Centennial Circuit), to the creative community known as Byron Creative. This is a cluster of fashion designers, interior designers and artists with art classes on offer. Maybe book in to paint your own self portrait at Byron Bay Art Studio?

Jules Hunt Ceramics Studio

If it's a rainy day, or you need to do something different, just drop the kids off at Circus School (inside AI Estate) for the morning and take a wander around Byron's ever creative estate.
