Cardinia Cultural Centre Gallery

Cardinia Cultural Centre Gallery 2

Cardinia Cultural Centre is Cardinia Shire’s arts and cultural hub. Set on the banks of a beautiful lake, the Centre is home to a boutique theatre, light-filled meeting and event spaces, a café and a brand-new art gallery and artists’ studios.

Opened in November 2019, CCC Gallery is a vibrant new art-space featuring curated traditional, digital and new-media exhibitions and installations by leading practice and emerging artists. This one-of-a-kind gallery delivers both majesty and intimacy through the clever architectural design and savvy technological assets, allowing for a multi-dimensional arts experience. Cardinia Cultural Centre is currently developing a program of exhibitions, performances, events and artist residencies to engage local residents and visitors from further afield too.
