The Art Gallery of Ballarat is Australia’s oldest regional gallery with a remarkably comprehensive collection of Australian art.
Visitors have the opportunity to walk through the history of Australian art, with important representative works from colonial to contemporary periods.
As well as the extensive permanent collection the Gallery hosts a diverse range of touring and temporary exhibitions and regularly curates significant shows often inspired by the work held by the Gallery.
The heritage-listed Gallery building, one of the oldest purpose-built art galleries in the country, has evolved to accommodate the expanding collection and now includes a range of spaces from grand and elegant 19th century rooms to stunning contemporary additions.
