Open the last Sunday of every month. Tawny Trails is a crafted journey that takes you through the heart of the creative Moreton Bay Hinterland.

Traveling from the country feel of Woodford through the lush green rolling hills of Mount Mee, the Glass House Mountain backdrop of Ocean View and onto the character-filled creative, cultural, and historic towns of Dayboro and Samford.

This is The Creative Living Experience. Throughout Tawny Trails, you will meet award-winning artists that have had creativity running through their veins since birth, as well as those with academic, holistic, and opportunistic backgrounds. Creativity and/or its appreciation can be found in us all and this trail will help you find yours.

Each location has been hand-picked to express different elements for your creative journey with no place alike. Enjoy an extensive variety of artworks, from whimsical illustrations and vivid landscapes to huge glamorous abstracts entwined with gold and silver.  You will also find lifestyle locations that are inspirational, explorational and experience-driven to heighten the creative journey.

Each participating location is marked on the trail map with a brief description and images. For further information, each has an individual webpage on the Tawny Trails website with all contact details. You will also find creative experience insights from each artist on each of these pages, including an accessible voice recording. The voice recordings will share with you how the artists got started, why they love what they do and any notable moments in their journey.
