Owner description: Established in 1887, Bendigo Art Gallery is the largest, and one of the oldest regional galleries in Australia. The Gallery's collection is extensive and varied with an emphasis on 19th century European art and Australian art from 1800s onwards, alongside a strong collection of contemporary Australian art. The collection is complimented by dynamic temporary exhibitions and a diverse range of public programs and events.

This was only my second art gallery but i loved it. Standing in front of painting created in the 1800's was more of an emotional experience than i anticipated. I fell in love with some of the modern art pieces but equally there were a few pieces that made me want to turn on my heel and run out. I was surprised and a little disappointed with how small the gallery was though.

It was sad that there were no new special exhibitions available at the time. The Australian permanent collection made up for any disappointment on the day.

The Art Gallery is always worth a visit especially when there are special exhibitions on. Well laid out, plenty of places to sit and enjoy the paintings and other exhibits. It can be an uphill walk from the city precinct but car parking behind the gallery is reasonable most days.
