“Excellent regional gallery”
Reviewed November 26, 2013 via mobile

An especially fine regional gallery with a wide range of exhibits. Well worth keeping an eye on for its exclusive exhibitions which it hosts regularly. An excellent coffee shop/restaurant and situated in an area full of excellent eateries and quirky shops

“One of Australia's treasures”
Reviewed November 25, 2013

The Bendigo Art Gallery is considered probably the best regional gallery in Australia. Its earliest galleries display a selection from its Collection of Australian and European paintings, decorative arts and sculptures from colonial times to around the 1930s. The other galleries exhibit examples from the Collection from the 1940s through to the present. There is also a wide-ranging programme of visiting exhibitions. By early 2014 two new galleries will open. The hangings are frequently changed. A free tour by one of the Gallery's volunteer guides is offered each day at 2pm.
Across the road there is a smaller gallery - usually very contemporary works - run in partnership with La Trobe University Bendigo campus. As well, in the former Post Office adjoining the Visitor Information Centre in Pall Mall are historical displays; this gallery in called the Post Office Gallery.
Entry to all three galleries is free, although donations are welcome.

Definitely one of the best regional art galleries with the finest range of changing exhibitions. Wonderful attached cafe. In walking distance from Bendigo railway station for a great day excursion from Melbourne - or anywhere else!
