Overview
More
Warrnambool Art Gallery’s collection shows the vision and aspiration of this region and its people. There is an air of possibility, a maverick spirit, and a collection of myths, risks and experiments. These collective imaginings have made the Gallery an important space that explores the essence of the modern Warrnambool — how its people see themselves, how outsiders can gain insight into the unique culture here and what it might become. WAG is a social hub, a custodian and meeting place that provides culture and education. It is a place where people come for activities that inspire, question and create positive, creative communities. Take a moment to explore our Collection and plan your visit to the Gallery and the region.

We especially wanted to see the iconic Von Guerard painting of Tower Hill and possibly the painting of Loch Ard Gorge . Are the colonial era artists out of favour, surely these works are part of the Gallery and should be on public view, particularly...More

I was impressed with the three exhibitions currently on display from local and indigenous artists (local and remote). The staff were helpful and gave me good advice.
