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

It is a Shane that so little of the permanent collection can be shown at any one time. However, the temporary exhibition I saw (about fish traps) was excellent, the other room with some elements of the permanent collection was very interesting, and I applaud...More

I saw someone painting on the outside of the building and realized it was an art gallery so went in for a stroll. There wasn't a lot there and what was wasn't actually very interesting to me..

The Warrnambool Art Gallery holds exhibitions of various artists throughout the year. There are three main display areas, one of which usually contains local historical artifacts. Staff are friendly and helpful. Occasionally, a small music ensemble may perform on a Sunday afternoon.
