The perfect day out

7th & 8th October 2017.

High on a cliff overlooking a spectacular coastline, the
Scarborough Art Show has become a cultural beacon of the Illawarra, attracting visitors and exhibitors from the region and across the state.

Now in its 19th year, the annual show has developed a reputation for its quality, its breadth and its affordability. Painters, printmakers, photographers and sculptors join with jewellers, ceramicists and craftspeople from Sydney to the Southern Highlands to create a vibrant exhibition, with something for everyone.

An hour’s drive south of Sydney through the Royal National Park and across the scenic Seacliff Bridge, visitors can enjoy a coffee, food, live music and kids' entertainment, and come away with an affordable piece of art.
