About

The Western Plains Cultural Centre (WPCC) is situated in Dubbo in Central Western NSW, and incorporates Dubbo Regional Gallery home to The Armati Bequest, Dubbo Regional Museum and Community Arts Centre. Dubbo City Council’s $8.2 million Centre provides a broad range of experiences in the Visual Arts, Heritage and Social History. Exhibitions, public programs and events presented across the site enable visitors to engage with the diversity of art practice, ideas, objects and themes presented.

The WPCC sits on the site of the old Dubbo High School which was established in 1917 and operated until 2000. The site features on the corner of Victoria Park, and is a short walk to the central business district, railway station and other amenities.

The Armati Bequest is housed in a purpose-built facility and features 706m² of exhibition space set out as five galleries. Dubbo Regional Museum features a permanent exhibition space devoted to the Museum collection and a temporary exhibition space for changing exhibitions. The two-storey school buildings that run along the Gipps Street end of the site incorporates the Community Arts Centre.

Museums & Galleries of NSW helps small-medium museums, galleries and Aboriginal cultural centres create exciting experiences for visitors and, through this, thriving local NSW communities. We don't run museums, galleries and cultural centres but we care about those who do. We develop their skills, connect them with others in the industry, provide funding, point visitors their way, and give them access to ground-breaking exhibitions.

Museums & Galleries of NSW is supported by the NSW Government through Create NSW.
