Visitors on route to the Mornington Peninsula, might be puzzled and somewhat intrigued driving past a turreted salmon pink castle-esque building on the left hand side of the Nepean Highway in Mount Eliza, travelling in the direction of Mornington.

Art lovers should certainly stop by, as the Tuscan castle inspired establishment is a rather interesting and somewhat unexpected art gallery.

Manyung Gallery Mount Eliza

The Manyung Gallery Mount Eliza is one of the oldest in Victoria, a purpose built gallery established in 1968, with large open contemporary spaces holding the work of some of the best Australian artists.

Inside you are first welcomed into a bright room with high ceilings, stained glass windows and grey slate floor within the turret. As you continue, you will notice a beamed ceiling and working fireplace, operating in the winter months.

Another reason to visit the Manyung Gallery Mount Eliza is to enjoy the courtyard, outside deck, tapas bar and licensed restaurant at The Gallery Bar and Grill. Stop for a coffee, a light snack or even a cocktail in the stylish bar, or go for something little more special with an array of tempting choices from the restaurant's upmarket Ala Cart menu. The Gallery Bar and Grill is open for lunch and dinner between Wednesday and Sunday, and breakfast on Saturday and Sunday.
