The Clifton School of Arts has served the Northern Illawarra as a centre for cultural, educational and community events for over 140 years. The iconic building overlooking the ocean, provides a spectacular venue for exhibitions, workshops, art and yoga classes, small concerts, film screenings and a wide range of educational and community events.


Clifton School of Arts is perched high on one of the most beautiful and dramatic sections of the Australian coastline. If you’re planning to visit the CSA to see an exhibition or come to an event, make sure to leave some time to walk the famous Sea Cliff Bridge. Just across the road from the CSA you will find great coffee and gourmet food at the Imperial @Clifton Hotel which is open 7 days a week. Feeling adventurous? Climb the ancient Wodi Wodi track to the top of the escarpment. You will pass through stunning angophora forests, discover pristine waterfalls and take in spectacular views up and down the Illawarra Coast.
