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.
Alongside the permanent collection, we also present a vibrant program of exhibitions along with a diverse mix of lifelong learning experiences.
The Gallery offers a broad range of Learn programs to explore, respond and learn about our landscape and cultural identity.
