Busselton Cultural Precinct

Where art and heritage meet

Art collections can be a fascinating way of dipping into the history of a place and this is certainly the case with the City of Busselton Collection. Like many other local government collections in WA, this one started with a donation of paintings by the philanthropist and arts patron, Claude Hotchin. Since then, art has been acquired at different times through particular connections and events, creating a diverse collection.
