The Northern Highway Galleries

Going on a road trip this summer?  (Norther Highway takes you from Melbourne up to Echuca) Needing to stop off for a cuppa and to stretch your legs?  Visit a local gallery – probably one on the main street in amongst the cafes.

Heathcote – Mudwood Studio

This studio supports a range of local artists and so has a variety of works to entertain and inspire – sculpture, painting, ceramics, photography and more. Susie Marcroft sculptor and gallery owner will happily chat with you about the inspiration and aims of her works.

Rochester – SILO ART

This is not a studio it is art in public spaces –  making something amazing out of something very ordinary.  In the interest of driver safety pull over to check out the Silo Art – giant murals painted on the exterior of two silos in the centre of the town.  Artist Jimmy DVat has apparently travelled the world creating his gigantic artworks.

Echuca – Alton Art Gallery & the Holden Museum

The Alton Art Gallery  supports local artists from Echuca and Moama (over the Murray river in NSW). If you are a car enthusiast, Echuca is home to The National Holden (car) Museum in Echuca.
