  • Beautiful little gallery that houses a variety of exhibits and has a pleasant charm about it. Well worth the drive from Melbourne as it showcases some great artist. Has a cafe and is located near some decent eateries.
  • Love this gallery. So many excellent pieces. Also has wonderful special visiting exhibitions. Great to go from Melbourne by train for the day. The train runs both ways hourly.
