The Shoalhaven welcomes buskers across our public places and the positive contribution they make to our region.

Shoalhaven City Council does not issue busking permits, however, rules apply as follows:

  • do not block the footpath
  • be considerate to the shopkeepers as to where you position yourself
  • talk to shop owners and discuss your intention to busk in front of their premises and ask if they have any concerns
  • respect the wishes of shop owners should they ask you to move on
  • do not display, demonstrate or advertise other goods or services for sale or associate yourself with advertising in conjunction with your performance

Busking at local markets

Markets are organised by a variety of community members/organisations. You will need to contact the market organiser for permission to busk at markets
