Bunbury Regional Art Gallery
Housed in a very distinct pink convent, BRAG is home to the largest collection of public art in Western Australia. The South West’s premier art gallery also offers a program of rotating art exhibitions. An experience that truly transports you.
Collie Art Gallery
Small but impressive, this is an art gallery that kicks beyond its weight. The Collie Art Gallery opened in 2015 and was the first fit-for-purpose A-class gallery to be built in Western Australia since the Art Gallery of WA was opened in 1979. Through a passionate team and local support, it showcases a diverse and impressive exhibition program – think Arthur Boyd, the Janet Holmes a Court collection, and the Life Story of Ann Frank. It also provides regional Australia’s richest art prize – The Collie Art Prize (CAP) – a cool $50K is on offer for talented artists.
Little Art Gallery, Boyup Brook Visitor Centre
