Wander Victoria

You don't know much about art, but you know what you like, right? Find it in shadowy caves adorned with ancient drawings, a converted convent dedicated to fine arts, an architectural extension of the lush landscape boasting a roster of national treasures, a field of gently swaying lavender frozen in the 1860s, or sprawling gardens dotted with sculptures.

Like your art when it's by a big name and slapped onto the wall of a traditional gallery? Venture into the hallowed halls of the regional art centres and museums built on the back of Victoria's gold rush. Check out how Drysdale saw early twentieth century life in Ballarat, and clap your eyes on some mind-boggling bequests in Hamilton.

Back sheds, lounge rooms (knock first, ok?), warehouses or gallery studios, Victoria's crafty types are often happy to throw open their studio doors and welcome you in for a chinwag and a gander at the intricate results of their painstaking work.

And if you're the crafty type in question, pop into art shops and creative boutiques to stock up on supplies, then head out into the great outdoors to seek inspiration from that ever-dependable muse, Mother Nature.
