Overview

See some of the world's most exciting exhibitions in Victoria's regional art galleries, and discover fascinating works by renowned local artists and the environments that inspired them.

Masterpieces worth travelling for

Ballarat and Bendigo are home to two of Australia's oldest and largest regional galleries, both with outstanding permanent collections. Marvel at Victoria's historic riches at the Art Gallery of Ballarat and join the buzz at Bendigo Art Gallery, which hosts significant touring exhibitions from London's V&A and other international collections.

Wine and art

Wine and art go hand in hand, so it's no surprise that Victoria's wine regions are also home to some of the best regional galleries. The sleek galleries at TarraWarra Museum of Art host iconic Australian works and share a site with the acclaimed TarraWarra winery.

Ancient art

Swap art galleries for natural shelters in the Grampians and see Aboriginal rock paintings that tell stories of the Dreaming.

Horsham, Hamilton and Ararat hold their own when it comes to regional collections thanks to contemporary Australian photography, marvellous textiles and a history of rich bequests.

Artistic communities

Discover contemporary and historic works at Warrnambool's WAG, and see scintillating ceramics in Shepparton. Benalla Art Gallery's striking modernist building by the lake is an artwork in its own right.

You'll find a thriving art and culture scene across Gippsland, and a diverse community of artists turning out exceptional furniture, wearable art and colourful works in Daylesford and the Macedon Ranges. The eight galleries of the breathtaking Convent Gallery in Daylesford are a major drawcard.
