TarraWarra Museum of Art

TarraWarra Museum of Art is located in the beautiful Yarra Valley wine region, just one hour north-east of Melbourne.

Throughout each year it presents seasonally changing exhibitions within an award-winning building set in the rolling hills of the natural landscape.

Since opening in 2003, the Museum has become recognised as the cultural jewel of the Yarra Valley, providing visitors with an enjoyable and inspiring experience which combines stunning architecture with the very best of modern and contemporary art. Over 70 temporary themed exhibitions have been presented at the Museum to date, covering a diverse range of stimulating and innovative Australian and international art in group and collection shows and single artist surveys, providing the opportunity to experience fresh contexts in which to view Australian art today.

TarraWarra captures the vision of the museum’s founders, philanthropists Eva Besen AO and Marc Besen AO, passionate collectors of Australian art from the 1950s to the present day, who have gifted both the building and its collection to the public. The collection features many significant Australian artists who were instrumental in the development of modern art in this country.

Committed to fostering a passionate engagement with art within a relaxing environment, the Museum is unmissable when planning your visit to the Yarra Valley. Children are always welcome and specially tailored children’s activity sheets are available for each exhibition. The Museum provides disabled car parking and easy access to all galleries.
