Thanks for your kind and positive review sunnysideup_11. Sharing my stories is part of the joy of having a gallery when people are interested to hear about the artworks. I look forward to the day you find the 'perfect' original for you.

Sometimes you come across an artist that just "gets" her subject and Jenny does. She makes you feel like you are in the picture, looking and feeling. The colours are fantastic and so real that what she has created looks like a photo....Amazing!!!

Well worth a visit! Staff are extremely helpful and are very knowledgeable. The exhibit has so much information which is enjoyable to read and listen to. Not so good for little kids but they could take away some information. Well worth a visit!

Hi Happy camping trailor and Trip Advisor. I think this review is about the Back O Bourke Exhibition Centre situated in Bourke, not the Back O Bourke Gallery which is an art gallery situated at North Bourke.

Allow at least 1 hour plus to go through the gallery. So much to read and see but just fascinating to see the history.

This gallery captured the farming foundations of the area and kept the viewers interested with a variety of interactive and static displays. We purchased a package ticket for the gallery and the Darling River paddleboat cruise
