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.

Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

The gallery has an eclectic range of art works, and you can probably find something to suit your taste. Reading a previous comment that the gallery is pricey, maybe the writer did not take into account that these items are not mass produced by a machine but individually crafted by the artist. The shop does have limited hours which can be annoying.

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 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.

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?

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.

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.

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.
