Aboriginal Exhibitions Gallery

Top choice in Victorian High Country

Opened in late 2017, this Indigenous gallery at Rutherglen Estates presents an ongoing and evolving showcase of work by some of Australia's leading Aboriginal artists. Painting, mixed media and sculpture are all featured, and exhibitions are usually refreshed around every three months. The spectacular gallery is housed amid a modern architectural reboot of Seppelts' wine warehouses that date from the late 19th century.
