The TarraWarra museum is a superb location for lovers of fine Art. The restaurant, Gallery shop and winery make it the perfect destination for visitors to the Yarra Valley. The most recent exhibition curated by Anthony Fitzpatrick is a highlight in this years calendar.

The art might not be for everyone but the architecture works as a piece of art too. The whole complex has been built into the side of the hill to complement the nature surrounding it and to frame the view.
