Iconic Art Returns to Culburra

Max Dupain Exhibition | Indigenous Language in Photos | Local Artists


Banksia Room Exhibition

Make sure you stroll by the Banksia Room, near our music and markets hub to see a collection of the following locally focused art artworks. These exhibitions are free.

– Max Dupain Photographic Collection

The Max Dupain photographic exhibition is on special loan from the State Library of NSW. ‘The Vandyke Album’ was  shot at Culburra Beach in 1937 on a surfing and camping expedition with six of Dupain’s friends, and includes the Australian iconic photo ‘The Sunbaker’. This is a rare chance to see these icon photographs.

– Photographs from the Jerrinja Exposed

A warmly received and very successful initiative showcasing works of art created by 10 young Indigenous artists, celebrating the Jerrinja Aboriginal language and country. The project was completed under the supervision of local professional photographer Hugh Hartshorne.

– A Cornucopia

 A cornucopia of items from artists, collectors and crafts people who call Burradise home. Expressions of interest taken from local artists to exhibit here.  

Bunt the town

As part of the Culburra Beach Festival, the community is showing their support by dressing up the town in kilometres of handmade bunting. The goal is to cover our festival hubs with colourful flags made by the community! Can you help our bunting army? if you are keen to help create this colourful celebration of our town, contact Karyn on 0403 509 513.

Our Kids Create

Our local littlies from Culburra Beach Primary and preschools are also creating up to 250 cool bunting artworks. They are given some material and a template, then let their imaginations run wild. Keep your eye out around town for these colourful interpretations of what Burradise means from the minds of our babes!

It’s Burradise … you’ll love it!
