Art Gallery of Ballarat
The Art Gallery of Ballarat is Australia’s oldest and largest regional gallery, boasting 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 offers a diverse range of touring and temporary exhibitions and regularly curates significant shows often inspired by the work held by the Gallery.
