More than 20 venues and studios will open their doors to the public for the annual Tree Street Art Safari this Saturday.

Emerging Bunbury artist Dylan Neitrzeba is taking part for his second consecutive year.

“It was my first year last year and I know Andrew Fraser quite well – who does the murals in town and he said ‘why don’t you join this’ (Tree Street Art Safari) so I did,” Mr Neitrzeba said.

“It went really well last year so I thought why not do it again this year.”

Tree Street Art Safari organiser Jo O’Dea said the event had a great community feel.

“It’s a beautiful event and it’s got this lovely village feel about it and also it’s a really nice way to explore a neighbourhood,” she said.

“One thing we really like about the art safari is that it encourages people to walk the neighbourhood rather than ride or drive and be busy.”

Ms O’Dea said it also gave people the opportunity to buy art on display.

The self-guided walking trail will begin at 10am in the Tree Street area of Bunbury.
