Art galleries

Experience the flourishing art scene in galleries and cafes dotted throughout the Great Ocean Road region, from Torquay and Lorne to Port Fairy. Visit large regional galleries at Warrnambool and Geelong to see works by some of Australia's finest artists or pop into small private galleries and potteries to get a glimpse of local contemporary talent.

Galleries and studios
Port Fairy has a growing reputation for its arts and crafts. And with more than a dozen galleries and studios open to the public, it's easy to see why. Browse the gallery collections or visit the artists at work in their own studios. You'll find a wide range of arts including paintings, sculpture, glass, ceramics and jewellery, and the galleries are often housed in beautiful historic buildings.

Head further along the coast to the renowned Warrnambool Art Gallery. Established in 1886, and now located in the Warrnambool arts precinct, it houses a diverse collection of works, from elegant European salon paintings to examples of avant-garde modernism from the Angry Penguins movement. 

Inspired by the sea
Stop for a culture break on your drive along the coast and see how local artists respond to the incredible seascapes and stunning natural attractions of the region. Wander through galleries in Geelong, Queenscliff, Lorne and Apollo Bay and check out the wide variety of local art, including oil and watercolour, pottery and photography.
