Founded in 1956, the Gallery was originally housed in Rio Vista House, now a historic house museum (see separate entry). A highlight of The Permanent Collection is a significant collection of English and traditional Australian paintings donated by Senator R D Elliott and Hilda Elliott, and including works by Brangwyn, Orpen, John, Cox, Streeton, McCubbin and McInnes.
