Established in 1896, Geelong Gallery on Little Malop Street has developed into a true destination for art from all eras. In 2017 a redesign and refurbishment of its entrance foyer updated the heritage-listed building for modern times, and in 2019 and 2020 a major collection storage upgrade was completed. It features an expansive collection of Australian and European art, including classic Australian landscapes by Arthur Streeton, as well as Aboriginal art, sculptures and contemporary techniques – most notably featured in its biennial Contemporary Art Prize. Opposite Johnstone Park, the grounds of the gallery are an ideal spot for a post-visit stroll. There’s free entry, but exhibitions may attract a fee.
