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 is a most impressive gallery. On entry there were two temporary exhibitions to view which contrasted imaginatively. The permanent exhibition is of a high standard and draws the visitor further into the gallery to explore Australian painting, furniture and other items. The only downside to the visit was the cafe decided to close early, so a coffee was out of the question....pity!

A well presented air gallery with a wide range of photos, ceramics, silver objects and Australian paintings to view. Loved the new purchases/bequests gallery

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.

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.
