Margaret River Street Art Trails include both Shire of Augusta Margaret and privately commissioned works in public spaces. 

You may discover some additional artworks along the way that appear in galleries, venues and on private land – these too can be enjoyed as part of your arts experience in the region.

The trails will continue to grow and evolve with opportunities for additional public art to be added to the trails over time.

More street art is popping up in Augusta and we look forward to the addition of those works to an Augusta-specific trail.

Margaret River Art Trails are a fabulous free activity for families, suitable for all ages.

You can explore some of the artworks and take a break along the way, fill your keep cup with coffee and explore as few or as many as you like.

Our top picks for families are Wings on the Cowie Street Art Trail where you can take a fun selfie to share, Wadandi Boodjarra on the Margs Street Art Trail where you can learn about Wadandi culture with a video featuring the artists themselves and The Stick on the Prevelly Coastal Art Trail, which you can enjoy while the kids play at Rifebutts playground.

The Margaret River Street Art Trails experience has been created around pre-existing artwork in the Shire, some which you can discover tucked down laneways and along the coast, while others are easily accessible from our main streets. We encourage all users of the trail to mind the usual bumps and curbs, and to look out for traffic while enjoying the art. While every effort has been made to ensure the art trails experience can be enjoyed by everyone, we encourage you to contact us if you see a place where we can improve.

We want to show off art for all the right reasons!

Please contact us if you see something that needs to be looked at so we can have the issue sorted out or notify the business owner.

Augmented Reality (AR) is redefining how artists and viewers interact and we’re working on bringing this to some of the artworks on our trails.

This exciting next step is still in the studio and soon you’ll be able to hold up your phone to artworks with an AR symbol to reveal additional audiovisual elements to bring the artwork to life. 

Make sure you follow us on Instagram for all the latest updates!

If you’re a local artist keen to be part of the trails, a member of the public with some ideas to share, or a local business who wants to know more about street art in our Shire we’d love to hear from you – please contact us!
