Message from the Director

Warrnambool Art Gallery’s collection shows the vision and aspiration of this region and its people. There is an air of possibility, a maverick spirit, and a collection of myths, risks and experiments.

These collective imaginings have made the Gallery an important space that explores the essence of the modern Warrnambool —  how its people see themselves, how outsiders can gain insight into the unique culture here and what it might become.

WAG is a social hub, a custodian and meeting place that provides culture and education. It is a place where people come for activities that inspire, question and create positive, creative communities.

After continuous operation for 130 years our mission remains to uphold and transform the cultural life of South West Victoria.

Take a moment to explore our Collection and plan your visit to the Gallery and the region.

Warrnambool Art Gallery Director
