The Archibald Prize is Australia's largest portrait prize, open to anyone to enter. There is always controversy surrounding the judges' choices, and this year Victorians can judge the works for themselves at TarraWarra Museum of Art in Healesville.


TarraWarra Museum of Art is Victoria's only privately funded yet publicly owned art museum. It's situated on a winery, so there is plenty of opportunity to taste some of the Yarra Valley's finest wines after you've looked at the art. The scenery is also beautiful.

TarraWarra Museum of Art is located at 311 Healesville-Yarra Glen Road, Healesville. Opening hours are 10:30 am until 5 pm, Tuesday to Sunday. Due to the Archibald Prize exhibition, the museum will be open from 9 am until 9 pm on Saturday the 30th of July and from 9 am until 5 pm on Sunday the 31st of July.

Yarra Valley Winery Tours are running a shuttle service to the gallery from Lilydale and Healesville. Visit their website for more information.

This is the perfect opportunity to escape the city this Winter without straying too far afield. The Archibald Prize rarely comes to Victoria, so this is also an opportunity that won't come around again for a while.

If you want to see the finalists' and winner's works before you go, visit the Art Gallery of New South Wales' website and take a look.
