Annie’s studio, Annie McArt, is situated outside Peachester, south of Maleny. From the Kilcoy Beerwah Rd, turn into the delightfully scenic River Rd. Drive approximately 5km , cross a double concrete bridge, and follow the signs to an original Queenslander farmhouse, situated right at the roadside amongst pasture and forest. Access is easy, lots of parking.

Annie participates in the Open Studio trail and is happy to show visitors her art techniques and practices. There are art works displayed gallery style as well as works in progress to see.
