Whistlewood Contemporary Australian Art

Galleries, Museums and Collections

Discover a wide variety of fine-quality Aboriginal art and select contemporary abstract art at the Whistlewood Contemporary Australian Art in the Mornington Peninsula’s beautiful hinterland. Immerse yourself in the vibrant program of changing exhibitions selected by two of Australian art’s most respected experts – Susan McCulloch OAM and Emily McCulloch Childs.

Whistlewood has been home of the McCulloch family of art writers and curators for 66 years. Having hosted many arts luminaries such as Boyd, Brack, Tucker, Perceval and Barry Humphries, this historic cottage has also doubled as both a family home and a place that fosters the creation, display and experience of art. The property even boasts a specialised artist’s studio, known in the family affectionately as ‘Arthur’s Studio’ having been co-designed and built by family friend Arthur Boyd.

With works from more than 20 Aboriginal art centres around Australia and select contemporary abstract art, here you can find that special piece, attend exhibitions, talks and the McCullochs’ unique Art Parades.
