Ararat Regional Art Gallery


Located in the heart of Ararat in the landmark Town Hall, Ararat Regional Art Gallery offers a varied program encompassing national touring exhibitions, aspects of the permanent collection and exhibitions by visiting textile fibre and regional artists.

The Gallery was established in 1968 and has a unique place amongst Australia's public galleries through its longstanding commitment to supporting and promoting textile and fibre art - a curatorial and collection focus that began in the early 1970's.

While the permanent collection is not always on display, the Gallery maintains its dedication to highlighting excellence, innovation and diversity in contemporary textile fibre art practice through an annual exhibition program that features visiting artists and touring exhibitions.

Langi Morgala Museum


The large eclectic collection covers a wide variety of themes of local importance and includes objects from the nineteenth and twentieth centuries. Some of the individual collections are comprehensive and have been gathered with intent to demonstrate the history of a movement or an organisation over time.

The museum artefact, photographic and document collection is made up largely of donations by individuals within the Ararat district. Some domestic items are on open display in six themed 'rooms'. Large pieces of machinery are displayed outside, along with the refurbished blacksmiths shop.

The collection is strong in aspects of the nineteenth and early twentieth century history of the town and district. Some more contemporary items, such as those relating to local World Champion and Olympic Cyclist Shane Kelly OAM and other local identities are also in the collection.

The museum also houses the largest collection of Aboriginal artefacts in Victoria, (the Mooney and Best collections), items with provenance to the Ararat goldfields, objects from the large squatters estates in the district, items relating to farming, commerce, war, social, domestic and community life. The surviving collection of an earlier Ararat Borough Museum set up around 1900 also form part of the collection.

Ararat Railway Museum


The Ararat Railway Museum is managed by the Ararat Railway Heritage Association, who formed in 1995 to preserve some of the history of the railways from the region.

The Museum contains two historically significant signal boxes. Signal Box 'A' was one of two signal boxes at the Ararat Station which were commissioned on 26 October 1891. The Box was located at the Melbourne end of the Ararat Yard (east end).

The other 'B' Box stood at the Stawell end of the Yard (west end). 'B' Box remained until 10 November 1984 when alterations in the Ararat Yard forced its closure and demolition. 'B' Box was originally built with 65 levers in February 1921, a further seven levers were added, bringing the total to its present number of 72.

Ararat Signal Box 'A' was decommissioned May 1995. The Historic Buildings Council has determined Signal Box 'A' and signal posts Ararat Railway Complex are of special significance to the State of Victoria. They were included on the Historic Buildings Council Register on 14 day of September 1995.

New members to the Ararat Railway Heritage Association are welcomed.
