  • Surprising to see such odd fashions in one place they would have very uncomfortble to wear-neverthe less interesting and worthwhile  more »
  • We travelled especially from Sydney to see "Balenciaga:Shaping Fashion" and it was worth it! Gorgeous! We look forward to future exhibitions at Bendigo Art Gallery.  more »

  • 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.
