William Robinson Gallery

Housed in the graceful setting of Old Government House is the William Robinson Gallery, solely dedicated to the display of works by Australia's pre-eminent landscape artist, William Robinson. A new exhibition, William Robinson: Elixir of Light, will be on display until mid-2020.
