Salt Contemporary Art Queenscliff exhibits the works of contemporary Australian painters, sculptors and ceramicists. Housed in an historically significant former drapery store, the gallery has long been considered the Bellarine Peninsula's premier art gallery.

Offering a dynamic, regularly changing exhibition schedule, and regular arts related events including lectures, exhibition openings and biannual Indigenous exhibitions co-curated by Susan McCulloch, Salt Contemporary gallery is a must see for all art enthusiasts.

Visitors to the gallery can also enjoy fabulous cocktails, a glass of local wine, a nibble of local produce, a comfy lounge by the open fire, and fabulous views of Swan Bay from the balcony of the upstairs wine bar - the Salt Lounge. The Lounge is the place for locals and visitors alike to unwind, to chat and to relax.

Visit the Salt website or Facebook page for more details regarding gallery and lounge events.
