Bundoora Homestead Art Centre is the public art gallery for the City of Darebin.
The gallery positions artists as central to the conversation about Australian life and culture. Housed within a heritage listed Queen Anne-style mansion, the gallery recognises the complex history of their site through the exhibitions, public education and collection programs they present.
Set amidst heritage gardens, The Kitchen offers a delicious range of small treats for afternoon tea, and the gallery shop offers a selection of limited-edition artist wares and Bundoora Homestead Art Centre merchandise.
Bundoora Homestead Art Centre provides disability access including a lift, on-site car parking and is situated close to public transport.
The Darebin Art Prize and A1 Darebin Art Salon community prize are held at Bundoora Homestead Art Centre on alternating years.
