Geelong Art Gallery
The Geelong Art Gallery ranks as one of the oldest in the country, and has been in existence for over 100 years. Centrally located in Geelong alongside the city's impressive town hall. Split out over two levels, the Geelong Gallery provides a history of the earliest days of the Geelong region as a whole, with artworks that date back to the days of Australia's initial colonisation.
Geelong Gallery was established in 1896 and is one of Australia’s leading art galleries, with a magnificent collection of Australian and European painting, sculpture, printmaking and decorative arts dating from the 18th century to today. The Gallery’s outstanding collection includes many works of national significance such as Eugène von Guérard’s View of Geelong 1856, and Frederick McCubbin’s A bush burial 1890. One particular focus of the collection is early images of the Geelong region, documenting the evolution of this important city and its environment.
Geelong Gallery works to contribute to the life and well-being of the city by fostering strong community engagement with the excellence of its collection, its creative lifelong learning experiences, and inspiring exhibitions.
