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.

The Gallery is located in View Street, but we have problems knowing how to view it! We finally visit the Gallery Café at the back, and find an entrance close by. For us the most interesting parts of the Gallery are the two main rooms with displays of European oil paintings. Some of these paintings are very large and impressive. It is always good to visit a new gallery, and especially rewarding to find some treasures.

Bendigo Gallery has to be one of the best regional galleries in Australia. Their permanent collection is varied and has quite a lot of European works as well as Australian painters. It is well worth a visit with a lovely coffee for lunch or coffee and, if you luck into a guided tour, well worth it. Our guide was friendly and knowledgeable and quite fun.
