Bayside Coastal Art Trail: Bunurong Country

Click the map to visit the Bayside Coastal Art Trail.

It's a project of the Bayside City Council. It's one of Melbourne's local council areas on Port Phillip Bay.

Our rates at work:

The cliff tops and beaches of the Bayside area have provided inspiration for many writers, sculptors and painters, most notably the Heidelberg School.

Over three years Bayside City Council has developed the Bayside Coastal Art Trail covering 17 km of one of Melbourne's most picturesque coastlines.

The Bayside Coastal Art Trail seeks to celebrate the lives and artwork of notable Australian artists who painted the Bayside coast in years past and maps an important part of the area's cultural heritage whilst enhancing the enjoyment for present day visitors to the coast.
If you can't walk the trail then just enjoy the virtual art tour.

Bayside is Bunurong country.

I used to live in the Eaglemont section of Heidelberg - where all those great painters were invented. Good luck to the Bunurong people - are there any left after 2 centuries of genocide?
