The Riddoch holds the state’s foremost regional collection with over 1500 items, from paintings and prints depicting the people and history of the Limestone Coast to a significant collection of Aboriginal and 20th Century Australian art, featured in curated collection exhibitions throughout the year

Don’t miss the daily screening of the movie ‘Volcano‘, the story of Earth, Fire and Water. Beginning with the local Aboriginal Dreamtime story, Craitbul, this awesome big screen adventure weaves its way through the eight major volcanic eruptions that created Mount Gambier and the Kanawinka region.

Oh, and parents… you’ll also be glad to know there’s plenty here to capture the kids’ imagination, with a range of interactive exhibits and school holiday activities to keep your little ones entertained for hours!
