City of Greater Bendigo


Bendigo Art Gallery

Bendigo Art Gallery's Voluntary Guides provide an integral service.  The Voluntary Guides deliver daily tours of the permanent collection, assist Education Officers with large school groups, and schedule tours of special exhibitions.

Taking part in tours presented by our Voluntary Guides offers visitors the opportunity to gain a deeper appreciation of art, perhaps instilling a life-long enthusiasm for the Gallery in the process.

Bendigo Art Gallery Voluntary Guides participate in an ongoing training program that includes talks by artists and industry professionals, in addition to regular visits to other galleries and exhibitions. While the recruitment and training process to become a Guide is a vigorous one, it is an ultimately rewarding experience through which these volunteers become part of the public face of the Gallery. Recruitment for the Guides usually occurs biennially.
