Remove the word "regional" and just think that this is a very good gallery. A fantastic Streeton and a bunch of Brett Whiteley works. Also very nice modern works. As a plus, cafe here is tops.

Wow, fabulous gallery. The Edith Head exhibition was incredible, so well set up and easy to navigate. I also took some time to enjoy some of the art works on display in the main gallery.

This is one on my favourite Art Galleries - the layout is perfect and really works. This time we stuck to the free area as we were short of time, so missed the main exhibition. Still worth the visit.

This gallery is well worth visiting if you are in Bendigo. Good mixture of pieces on display and some interesting Bendigo history.
