We are one of the oldest and largest regional galleries in Australia. Audiences come from around Australia to our innovative international exhibitions, public programs and events.
Our vision is to be a leading gallery that is recognised internationally and contributes creatively, culturally, socially and economically to the Bendigo, Victorian and National communities.
We seek to do that by using BAG’s Collection, Exhibitions, Education and Public Programs to engage, enrich, excite and educate.
Featuring Australian Art from the 1850s to the present day, art from the Bendigo goldfields and 19th century European paintings, sculptures and decorative arts.
