A unique art and lifestyle trail that winds its way through the Moreton Bay hinterland is giving local artists and creators the opportunity to expose their creativity to a whole new market.
Danielle Latta launched Tawny Trails last year, but in 2022 the concept has grown even bigger and better.
The King Scrub artist and owner of Running Duck Studio devised the trail as a way of encouraging people to jump in the car and go exploring.
The 70km self-drive adventure takes in the charming towns of Woodford and Dayboro, as well as the picturesque roads of Mount Mee, Ocean View, Clear Mountain, Samford and Wights Mountain.
Danielle describes the trail as a “creative living experience”.
“It shares with you all the different aspects of what living creatively can mean to you because we are all different,” Danielle explains.
Tawny Trails guides travellers through the Moreton Bay Hinterland, stopping in at the region’s galleries, museums, studios, national parks, restaurants, wineries and hotels on the last Sunday of every month.
There’s also a weekly Saturday trail focusing on artists in and around the historic township of Dayboro.
The trails give people a behind-the-scenes look at the creativity of the Moreton Bay Region’s hinterland, with access to galleries and studios that are not usually open to the public.
Brisbane Nature Guide joins Tawny Trails from January, adding a chauffeur-driven experience to the adventure, with a guided tour of either subtropical rainforest at The Gantry in the D’Aguilar National Park or a stroll through the Maiala Rainforest.
“It’s not just about looking at pretty pictures - because my gosh they are - but finding a connection that allows you to help express yourself, whether that be hands-on creating or surrounding yourself with beautiful things that show your style and loves,” Danielle says.
“Whether you are looking for inspiration, motivation, expression or just pure enjoyment, Tawny Trails will get you there.”
