Council recognises there are social, economic and environmental benefits to supporting a vibrant and creative culture. 

Busking is a colourful and creative platform on which to showcase the regions diversity and talents, with the Riverfront and CBD precincts providing the optimum venues for these experiences.

Through various artistic mediums, people from different backgrounds, cultures, genders, ages and levels of ability, are able to connect, entertain and generate income through public performance at a grassroots level.

Council also understands that this must be achieved in a way that complements and retains the ambiance and amenity of the surrounds, is safe, accessible and culturally sensitive for visitors, residents and those working in the area.

These guidelines are designed to provide boundaries for performers, businesses and community around the rules and expectation that influence busking activities in public spaces.
