Busking

The Shoalhaven welcomes buskers across our public places and the positive contribution is makes to our city. 

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
  • It is best to talk to shop owners and discuss your intention to busk in front of their premises and ask if they have any concerns
  • It is important that you respect the wishes of shop owners should they ask you to move on
  • 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
