  • Some interesting art works from famous Australian artists such as Tom Roberts, Fred McCubbin etc. Downstairs is a little museum with stuff from the Gold Rush era and early 20th Century.

  • They had a great activity for my son but it was very quiet and a little soulless. Good for a small walk round of about 45 mins.
  • a great rural gallery. good collection. great rooms. nice staff. worth the visit.
  • Spent a happy 45 minutes here, admiring the art and the museum downstairs. There was a collage/drawing activity for kids too.
  • Always a surprise with new exhibitions, a modest but quality permanent collection.
