“Surprising and amazing exhibits”
Reviewed October 31, 2012

For a regional gallery this is an amazing place. Some of the paintings are exquisite. The exhibits and exhibitions are widely varied. There is a delightful cafe attached to the building that has a pleasant lawn view.

“Best Regional Gallery”
Reviewed October 12, 2012

The Bendigo Art Gallery has a deservedly fine reputation for attracting fabulous international collections as well as maintaining high quality local works from Victoria and across Australia. Plus, it's housed in an historical building with its own lovely story. Well worth a visit and for locals like myself, a very pleasant destination throughout the year.

We found refuge from the cold in this lovely gallery. The four of us enjoyed all the rooms, particularly the sculptures and modern collection.
