Lumby and district is renowned for its artists, studios and galleries, featuring more than 30 heritage murals.
However, nearby Cherryville (22km/14mi east) remains the centre of this thriving arts and crafts community with roots in the counter culture of the 1960s. While the hippie lifestyle has largely been replaced by country gentry, many artists and artisans remain, creating paintings, sculpture, photographs, jewelry and woodwork.
Stroll Lumby's quiet village streets and open a window on the past through the artistry of more than 30 heritage murals, painted by a variety of local artists and the renowned muralist Michelle Loughery.
Staff at the Lumby Visitor Centre will provide directions for a country art drive and information on making appointments where required. Stop by Landslide Studios to see the work of potter Larry MacGregor whose pottery and clay murals are displayed in a forest setting on River Road.
