Getting to Kandos

Drive to Kandos, but stay over

Kandos is a pleasant 3½ hours drive from Sydney via the Blue Mountains or Bells Line of Road. Not impossible for a day trip, but once you get here you’ll want to stay. We strongly recommend at least one night for the full Cementa experience. Over the 4 days and nights we’re presenting works from more than 60 artists – many including performance – and evening events are some of the most popular festival highlights.
