White Cliffs Underground Arts Festival

September 24 – 26, 2021 — UPDATED DATE
Book accommodation now before it sells out

White Cliffs is one of Australia’s quirkiest Outback NSW towns, with most locals living underground in dugouts to escape the summer heat. The uniqueness of the opal mine hamlet, its eclectic characters and wandering souls have inspired a White Cliffs Underground Arts Festival. Held every two years, the colourful festival will be held this year from September 24-26, with local paintings, photography, sculptures and performances to enjoy above and below the ground.

Of course, if you’re visiting an underground arts festival, you need to stay underground in our very own White Cliffs Underground Motel – Australia’s largest underground accommodation. Boasting 48 subterranean rooms offering unique, whisper-quiet accommodation under the Earth, our world-famous motel makes a perfect and memorable base from which to enjoy the arts festival. Rates start at only $140 a night if you also stay at another of our Outback NSW properties as part of your escape. Book your festival accommodation before it sells out.
