Burrinja Gallery
Established in 1999, Burrinja is a multifaceted arts centre located in the foothills of the Dandenong Ranges of Victoria.  The centre presents a dynamic program of exhibitions throughout the year, from solo and group shows to touring exhibitions. 


Burrinja manages a public collection of over 600 items of Aboriginal art from the Central Desert, Kimberley and Arnhem Land, and a rare oceanic collection of predominantly post-colonial artefacts from the New Ireland and New Britain provinces in Papua New Guinea. The McLeod Gift Collection is managed on behalf of its owner, Yarra Ranges Council. For more information about the collection visit:

The membership provides an annual free ticket and discounts for the Burrinja theatre season, special member discounts at the gallery shop and exclusive invitations to exhibition openings, talks and VIP events.
