Newstead Open Studios

visit a creative community


Come and enjoy Newstead. Just a quick trip west of Castlemaine. Here you’ll find an extraordinary community of artists, with open studios to delight and intrigue. Stop for a coffee or a meal at Dig Cafe, our local good food café, have a drink at one of our two pubs – one on each side of the Loddon River, or visit local wineries a few minutes drive north – Welshmans Reef or Chapples Cairn Curran Estate.
