The historic Bendigo Post Office, built in 1887, is now home to the Post Office Gallery as well as Bendigo Visitor Centre and the Living Arts Space. Bendigo’s Post Office Gallery is a satellite gallery of Bendigo Art Gallery.
The Post Office Gallery is a 'social history' museum, showcasing significant collections, artefacts and material that explore the broadest possible history of the region. The gallery features a number of exhibitions every year highlighting the Bendigo regions colourful past.
The Post Office Gallery is the first of its kind in Australia: a unique venue with a changing annual exhibition program, ultimately allowing for the display and interpretation of a myriad of social history stories. This model ensures a continual exploration of the region's heritage while also ensuring operational sustainability, broad engagement, and strong and ongoing community involvement.
