The McClelland Gallery and Sculpture Park in Langwarrin (between Frankston and Cranbourne on the Mornington Peninsula, Victoria) houses an excellent collection of fine art and a world famous collection of major works by leading Australian sculptors.

Recently renovated, the award-winning gallery presents a vibrant program of exhibitions, public lectures and art events. Australia's leading Sculpture Park is set in eight hectares of landscaped bushland in Langwarrin, 4 kms East of Frankston, Victoria.

The McClelland 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.

The McClelland Gallery attracts thousands of people each year. Its program of changing exhibitions, accompanying public lectures and art events, complement the unique sculpture park which showcases over 50 works by major Australian sculptors such as Norma Redpath, Inge King, Lenton Parr and Anthony Pryor.

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

The McClelland Gallery has two major exhibition spaces and a further three areas used to exhibit works on a regular basis. The two largest exhibition spaces are the Murdoch Gallery at 300m2 and the French Gallery at 130m2.

These two exhibition areas are used as the primary internal exhibition areas and are always used for major exhibitions. Other In Focus, exhibitions are displayed in the Gallery foyer, the Café and the McClelland Room.

Curated and traveling exhibitions are exhibited primarily in the Murdoch and French Galleries. The McClelland Room is used for exhibitions which pertain to the history of the Gallery and Sculpture Park, such as works from the collection by Harry McClelland, Centre Five sculptors and other important components of the Gallery's collection.


Closed on Mondays and some Public Holidays.
