Three diverse galleries. The NAIDOC week displays were certainly a different style of art and quite captivating. Very stimulating, visually.

There is a long ramp for disabled users. People in manual wheelchairs may need assistance. Cafe serves a variety of food and the gallery has 3 rooms with varying exhibits.

Three exhibition areas, rather small. Mix of art styles. Very popular and busy café, though we did not eat there. Nicely located in the midst of Benalla's most popular attractions. Good with school holiday activities.
