The Shoalhaven welcomes buskers across our public places and the positive contribution it 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
  • 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
