  • Best gallery I've visited for years. Good combination of periods, styles and artists. Can't believe it was donation only.
  • Bendigo Gallery is very supportive of our Arnold Street Gallery. Exhibitions and curation at BG is world class and never to be missed.
  • Superb collection of Australian and European Fine Art... The best Regional Gallery you can visit.
  • Yes, this is the best gallery I've ever visited! Actually, I'm due to go back very soon.
  • I have always loved visiting this gallery, but my last visit was less than satisfying. The woman at reception should not be working in customer service. She completely ignored us, and only spoke after we addressed her first, but even then her tone and mannerisms were bitchy and pretty much told is she hated her job. The pieces being exhibited were also quite boring, most of it was all stuff I saw last time I was here, over 12 months prior. Overall a very disappointing experience.
