Ten years in Australia: #5. The National Gallery of Victoria

This week marks the tenth anniversary of my arrival in Australia!

In celebration, throughout this week I will be sharing some of my favourite photographs of this great country.

One of my favourite places in Melbourne is the Ian Potter Centre, which houses the National Gallery of Victoria‘s Australian Art collection. Back in the day this was a regular haunt of mine, with countless days of my life spent roaming the rooms and corridors of this magnificent building, especially the Indigenous Art collection on the ground floor.

It’s been over a year since I was in Melbourne, over two years since I last had the opportunity of exploring this most wonderful of galleries. Until I get the opportunity to visit it once more I have to make do with the memories of past visits and a selection of photographs I took when I spent a few hours in the gallery to escape a vicious storm when I was homeless.

If you ever visit Melbourne (or are a resident of this fair city) the NGV Australia is a must-visit destination. I guarantee you will not be disappointed :)
