Benalla - Cities, Towns and Localities
Known as the “Rose City on the Lake”, Benalla offers a great place to stop and stay awhile for the Hume and Midland Highway travellers, offering every amenity. Starting with a walk through the historic Botanic and Rose Gardens, then a reflective moment at the Sir Edward “Weary” Dunlop Memorial, is sure to leave a lasting impression.

On the shores of Lake Benalla, nestles the Benalla Regional Art Gallery, internationally recognised for its fine collection of Australian art and considered one of Victoria’s most important regional galleries.  As well as its fine collection of art works on display, it is also a venue for national and international touring exhibitions. Within the gallery hangs a magnificent tapestry of Sidney Nolan’s called the “Siege at Glenrowan” and depicts the capture of Australia’s most infamous bushranger, Ned Kelly.

Drop in to the visitor information centre located on the east bank of Lake Benalla, just across the Sir John Monash constructed bridge from the Regional Art Gallery, and housed in the Costume and Pioneer Museum, which also houses the two permanent exhibitions — “The Kelly Story” and “Benalla’s Famous Sons”.
