Visit Geelong Art Gallery for an experience of cultural wonder. The gallery has works from a magnificent permanent collection as well as a vibrant program of special exhibitions.
Established in 1896, the Gallery is a long-standing attraction in Geelong, providing a reason for tourists from Melbourne to journey down to the southern city and for locals to enjoy.
The collection hosted inside the stunning building features artworks from the 19th and 20th century, both Australian and European paintings and decorative arts, including many works of national significance such as Eugéne von Guérard’s View of Geelong (1856) and Frederick McCubbin’s A bush burial (1890).
The Gallery is easy to get to, just a short walk through Johnstone Park from Geelong Railway Station. It’s an hour long drive from Melbourne CBD.
