McClelland Sculpture Park + Gallery


McClelland Sculpture Park + Gallery was established in 1971 under the terms of the Will of Annie May (Nan) McClelland in honour of her brother Harry McClelland, an artist and philanthropist who owned the property and played an instrumental role in the development of the arts community in Victoria.

Set in sixteen hectares of bush and landscaped gardens in Langwarrin, four kilometres East of Frankston on the Mornington Peninsula, McClelland attracts thousands of people each year and the sculpture park which showcases over 100 works by major artists, such as: Norma Redpath, Inge King, Lenton Parr, Anthony Pryor, Lisa Roet, Clement Meadmore, Geoffrey Bartlett, Bruce Armstrong, and Peter Corlett to name a few.

McClelland has three indoor galleries which accommodate displays from its extensive permanent collection of works on paper, painting, photography and sculptures as well as touring exhibitions. The establishment of the Elisabeth Murdoch Sculpture Foundation in 1989 was the catalyst for the development of a substantial sculptural collection. McClelland is committed to the development of sculpture in Australia and is the home of the biennial McClelland Survey and Award for outdoor sculpture.

McClelland Sculpture Park + Gallery's public and educational programs aim to engender greater understanding of contemporary art with a focus on sculpture and nature. McClelland Gallery + Sculpture Park's guided tours, programs and school holiday workshops relate to the exhibitions and are a valuable resource for students and teachers. McClelland Gift Shop stocks a fine collection of art books, jewellery and objects d'art.

Stroll around the native gardens, come to McClelland Caf? and have a wonderful glass of wine with delicious meals enjoying the vista of the lake and the native birds.

Mornington Railway


The Mornington Railway is an operating railway museum, which recreates various Victorian Railways branch line activities just as they used to be for the education and enjoyment of the general public.

The Mornington Railway's longer-term vision is to offer a variety of services representing different methods of branch line operation in use from 1900 until the end of the branch line era in the 1970's.

A feature of the Mornington Railway is that original Victorian Railways heritage equipment and rolling stock is used to support and operate train services.

The Mornington Railway line is a heritage item in itself, having been opened in 1889. The main operational focus of the Mornington Railway is the running of steam-hauled passenger trains, but original Victorian Railways diesel-electric locomotives are used on trains occasionally.

Consideration is also being given to adding heritage goods vehicles onto regular passenger trains to recreate the era of the mixed train.

Their trains run on a regular basis between Moorooduc and Mornington, a round distance of approximately 11 kilometres.

The remaining unrestored 5.6 kilometres section of the line between the main line junction at Baxter and Moorooduc is being restored as time and funds permit.

The Mornington Railway's main centre of activity is Moorooduc station conveniently located in the centre of the Mornington Peninsula, a popular holiday destination about 60 kilometres from Melbourne

The Mornington Railway is operated by the Mornington Railway Preservation Society (MRPS), a not-for-profit incorporated association, which is staffed by dedicated volunteers.
