About
Stony Creek Gallery is an amazingly warm and welcoming space, nestled amongst the picturesque bushland of Victoria's famed spa country. The gallery walls are lined with original paintings by resident artist Michael Parker. With works derived from natural elements, and inspiration drawn from the Australian landscape, Michael's resin paintings are truly spectacular. The gallery also contains an extraordinary range of ceramics, blown glass, timber works, jewellery and sculptures by local Australian artists. Even the floor itself is an artwork; a handwritten, original and inspiring story painstakingly painted by Michael Parker. The gallery is also home to a beautiful sculpture garden with a stunning collection of contemporary sculptures and artworks. Entry to the gallery is free and on arrival you will be provided with a complimentary glass of bubbles to help soak in the unique beauty of your surroundings. Relax and unwind, take a sip and enjoy every moment.

What? Closed?
Jul 2021 • Couples
Cannot believe the gallery is closed Tuesday AND Wednesday, and during this very busy school holiday. We planned on visiting after our first trip here in 2014. But it’s closed the two days we were here…Very disappointing. Yes, I know, we Should’ve checked the hours, but seriously, what chance it would be shut two days midweek during this very busy period?

Great range of products but a tad pricey
Mar 2021
Great range of products can be found here, but their hours of operation are quite limited - even when the town was overflowing and people were trying to enter (such as over the Labor Day weekend) and they shut their doors at 4pm - silly business acumen.

Disappointed
Dec 2020 • Couples
Having made a special trip to buy Christmas presents at gallery in Vincent street was very disappointed that they were closed having bought from here and other gallery quite expensive articles with only 3 weeks till Christmas and given that they had a lean time through COVID I am amazed they were not making the most of opportunities there were many people in town at the time so I guess we weren’t the only disappointed customers do you want customers or not?

Worth a visit

Great gallery. We go to Daylesford every year and always find something to buy. The welcome glass of champagne is always appreciated.

We were especially impressed with the exhibits by David Hobday. So realistic - excellent use of colour and artistry.

Fantastic
Oct 2019 • Couples
This gallery should be on your list of places to visit. We were greeted with champagne in a handmade glass. The variety and quality of art, ceramics, glassware, jewellery etc was inspiring. Outside is an area full of stunning sculptures and quirky garden ornaments. We will definitely return anytime we are in the area.

Interesting work of art
Jun 2019 • Couples
We went in just to browse as visitors (my first time) in Daylesford. They had a varied selection of art and we ended up leaving with a couple of pieces from the store.

Beautiful art inside and out - definitely worth visiting
May 2019 • Couples
This large beautifully landscaped gallery is so inviting, I'm amazed that more people don't take time out to view the sculptured garden and fascinating art works in side. The warm greeting from staff and offer a glass of "champagne" enhance your decision to stop for a look. Besides many clever paintings by Michael Parker, you will see other artists creative works including jewellery, glassware and other mediums. Out back is another world to explore as you wander through the sculpture garden.
