Canberra to Melbourne: art stop-over
When driving the Canberra – Melbourne journey there are many good places to stop for a break. Benalla Art Gallery is one of the best.
The exhibition program is good and the gallery cafe serves good coffee and food. It is always worth the small effort to drive off the highway – it is a very short drive – and to stop at this very well run and attractive regional gallery.
Here’s pictures of the current exhibitions – and this is very much the good standard of exhibition you can expect. Three galleries usually showing three different types of works – one being local from the region – one being a more contemporary and often touring or one being especially curated for the gallery – and lastly an exhibition usually centered around their collections
For the travellers – a great place to stop, rest, and take in some visual arts.
