Artist in Residence at the NSW Rail Museum

Thirlmere, Wollondilly

The NSW Rail Museum is home to a significant rail heritage collection, including over 100 rolling stock items, associated with the history of the railways in NSW. The museum is a premier attraction for the Wollondilly area.

Workspace / Studio

The museum has a 5-hectare rail corridor site. A temporary studio space on site at the museum will be created to best suit the successful Artist/s. These are also significant outdoor and undercover spaces that house train carriages and related collection items.


The successful Artist/s are responsible for booking their preferred local accommodation in Thirlmere or nearby locations within the Wollondilly Shire. STA staff can assist with recommendations. 

The STA Air Program is proudly funded by the NSW Government through Arts Restart.

Southern Tablelands Arts works with six contributing local government areas of; Goulburn Mulwaree, Hilltops, Upper Lachlan Shire, Wingecarribee Shire, Wollondilly Shire and Yass Valley.
