It is the oldest and largest gallery in regional Australia, established in 1884, and houses one of the country's most significant and inspiring collections of Australian art.

Explore the rich history of Australia through the history of Australian art, from early colonial work reflecting life during the settlement years, to contemporary art exploring modern culture and ideas. See the original Flag of the Southern Cross that flew over the stockade during the 1854 Eureka uprising.

There is also a fabulous gift shop where you can buy works of local artists and craftspeople as well as souvenirs, toys and art books.
