Archibald Prize 2021 Opens in Gippsland as Melbourne looks to freedom

Melburnians watching the vaccination rate climb toward the ‘80% vaccinated’ target for the return of travel to regional Victoria are already dreaming of hitting the open road. If those dreams entail wide-open countryside, endless beaches and lazy afternoons in local wineries they need look no further than Gippsland for a break that will exceed expectations – and now there’s even more reason to book, as the region is home to the only showing of the Archibald Prize 2021 outside of NSW.

Located in Sale, in central Gippsland, the Gippsland Art Gallery is the sole Victorian host for the Archibald Prize 2021 regional tour. The exhibition will be on display from 8 October to 21 November.  It has been well received by regional Victorians since opening, and with the anticipated release of Melburnians from lockdown around 5 November, now is the ideal time to start planning for a short break getaway to Gippsland taking in the Archibald Prize 2021.

Celebrating its centenary this year, the Art Gallery of New South Wales’ Archibald Prize is Australia’s foremost portraiture prize it is the country’s oldest and best-loved portrait award, and one of its most prestigious.

Mayor of Wellington Shire Council, Cr Garry Stephens said:

“We are excited to welcome the Archibald Prize to the Gippsland Art Gallery.  We encourage all visitors to plan a weekend escape or mid-week break to not only experience the Archibald Prize, but to experience everything else that our amazing region has to offer. Sale is the ideal base, with destinations such as 90 Mile Beach, Port Albert, Tarra Bulga National Park, Yarram’s Heesco murals and plenty of wineries and dining experiences all within easy reach.”

Ideally located in the centre of Gippsland, Sale is an easy drive from the cool temperate rainforest of Tarra Bulga National Park, the rugged beauty of the Gippsland high country, historic fishing village of Port Albert and endless sandy stretch of the 90 Mile Beach. Nearby East Gippsland is home to majestic Gippsland Lakes, a water-lovers paradise that abounds with fishing, boating and plenty of fresh seafood! And right at the southernmost tip of the mainland, you’ll find the hiking mecca of Wilsons Promontory, where spring equals peak whale watching season and boat tours can get you close to the action.

Tickets to the Archibald Prize 2021 in Gippsland are priced at $17 for adults, $15 for seniors, $11 for concession (cardholders + students) and $9 for children (ages 5-17). A group discount of $15 per ticket applies to groups of 10 or more. Tickets can be purchased at archibaldprizegippsland.com.au.
