The National Gallery of Victoria was founded in 1861, making it the oldest public art gallery in the whole of Australia. Not only is it the oldest but also the largest, you can spend hours wondering the enormous rooms here and losing hours admiring the massive range of art that is on display. During the great surge of wealth that Victoria experienced during the gold rush meant that this area was the richest in the country and hence the reason they were able to gather such a large collection of famous works so early on. There is no better time to come share in this great deal of art and Australian history as in 2011 the gallery celebrates its 150th birthday.
