Bunbury Regional Art Gallery

Look out for the pink building! Now a ‘must visit’ destination for any art lover, this heritage-listed building was once a Sisters of Mercy Convent and Chapel, dating from 1897. You can find some of this history in one of the nun’s bedrooms upstairs, and be sure to visit the Chapel Gallery. Standing here, when the late afternoon sun beams through the stained glass windows, you can almost sense the spiritual nature of the place, especially when surrounded by stunning art. The numerous gallery spaces allow for a wide range of different exhibitions to be presented at the same time, so you will usually be able to view art by emerging and established artists, in a wide variety of media. A selection of artworks from the City of Bunbury Art Collection is always on display. The City has benefitted from the generosity of Claude Hotchin, the philanthropist and arts patron. The City of Bunbury was the first local government to receive a donation from Hotchin, who donated 22 paintings to Bunbury in 1948.
