Gippsland Art Gallery, 8 October – 21 November 2021

The Archibald Prize exhibition will celebrate its 100th anniversary in The Middle of Everywhere!

Just 2.5 hours East of Melbourne, you’ll find some of Victoria’s finest offerings – from scenic mountain ranges, pristine beaches, beautiful wetlands, temperate rainforests and many other beautiful places, the best of nature is right at your fingertips in the heart of Gippsland. Take a stroll along Ninety Mile Beach, explore the many wonders of the Alpine National Park and wind down in the Gippsland Lake Coastal Park. We don’t call it The Middle of Everywhere for nothing.

Add to that a thriving café and restaurant culture as well as an enviable selection of wineries and foodie treats, and you’ve got all you could ever need right on your doorstep.
