Such a beautiful old building with an enchanting staircase going upstairs. The artworks there are out of this world.

A great exhibition of Australian art and artists. There was plenty to see. We spent a few very enjoyable hours wondering through the exhibition. This would be one of the best art galleries in the state.

If you're interested in art and you're going to Ballarat you must go to this gallery. There are works by some European artists but the collection is predominantly by mostnof Australia's top artists. Well worth a visit.
