Hurstville Museum & Gallery opened in 2004 and is maintained by Georges River Council. Located in the center of Hurstville CBD, it is the only regional museum and gallery in the St George district. The Museum & Gallery is a vibrant hub of community activity, with regular programs, special events, and exhibitions. With a collection of more than 6,000 objects and artworks, many of which are publicly accessible online via eHive, Hurstville Museum & Gallery’s collection exemplifies the history of the St George region.

Hurstville Museum & Gallery is dedicated to developing exciting inhouse art and social history exhibitions, and presenting touring shows to the community. With five display spaces that change regularly, visitors can explore a range of high quality exhibitions, learn about the area’s history in the gallery’s award-winning display St George Stories: people – places – community and discover local artists in its Dragon’s Lair Gallery.


The Georges River Art Prize showcases a range of the finest paintings and sculptures produced from artists nationwide, and gives local young artists a platform to display their works. This biennial prize, next occurring in 2025, offers more than $20,000 in prize money.

The Georges River Artist in Residence Program invites artists a unique location to explore, interpret and experiment with their artistic practice. The program provides a studio and accommodation for one artist, located in the picturesque setting of Carss Bush Park on the Georges River. Residencies of up to three months are available to local, regional and international artists across a wide range of art forms.
