Exploring art in regional Victoria

Regional Victoria is filled with talented artists and creators. We've put together a list of regional art galleries you can explore both in real life and online.

Victoria is opening up, and many of us want to throw our support behind our own backyard, by exploring our own state for day trips, short getaways, or the summer holiday period.

Regional Victoria has so much to offer; from great food and wine to beautiful beaches and national parks to talented makers and creators.

We have put together a list of art galleries dotted around Victoria's regional towns that you can check out from the comfort of your home, or when you next hit the road.
