2014 – 2015
Here at OBE, we are passionate about our production region, known as Australia’s Channel Country. It’s where our family farmers raise their certified organic livestock and produce grassfed beef. We are proud to announce our sponsorship the Kunmurri Art Trail Guide.
The only guide to arts and culture in western Queensland, the Kunmurri Art Trail guide is about to hit the press and once again showcase the unique and diverse experiences this region has to offer.
The booklet is being printed and distributed in the next two weeks to ensure it is available for the onset of the northern tourist season. It contains maps, contact details and beautiful images of the art and cultural experiences that are available in western Queensland and aims to encourage people to come to the area.
The booklet will be available at tourism centres, galleries and other outlets in the region and follows on from the success of the previous three editions. A dedicated website will be launched in April which makes the information in the Trail available to anyone, anywhere, at any time.
This year Vast Arts is proud to have OBE Organic support the project and they are excited about the possibilities that come from this partnership.
“OBE Organic is such an iconic Channel Country enterprise who are also very proud of the unique product they offer from this region to world. Their ethos fits with ours”, says Vast Arts Project Officer Nicole Harper.
We are encouraging visitors to help us support visual arts, artists and their unique stories by using the #Kunmurri hashtag when they upload photos and videos on line from their outback adventures.
Through our social media platforms, like Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Vine Videos and Youtube; we share the story behind our unique product, with thousands of people all over the world. Please join the conversation by using the #Kunmurri hashtag when you post.

The Kunmurri Art Trail was first published in 2011 after significant concept development by Vast Arts. The Art Trail aims to provide both locals and visitors to western Queensland a comprehensive guide to the art and culture sites in the region. Contact details, maps and other useful information is published in an A6 sized booklet and 10,000 are distributed throughout Queensland and New South Wales annually. The booklet is available at tourism centres, galleries and other outlets. The cost of inclusion in the Art Trail is included in membership of Vast Arts.
In 2014 a website dedicated to the Art Trail is being developed and will be launched with the booklet in March.
If you would like to be part of the booklet and website and have your artwork, gallery, cultural group or other art/cultural product or experience included in the next edition please contact Vast Arts.
