The Somerset Regional Art Gallery – The Condensery has a rich history, formerly home to the Nestle condensed milk factory packing facility.
Now a unique cultural precinct, the gallery hosts rotating exhibitions, featuring works across various mediums and is available for workshops and community art events.
Visit the gallery and be greeted by a distinctive hand sculptured bronze red deer statue by renowned Somerset artist, Bodo Muche. This sculpture represents an important part of Toogoolawah’s heritage - the gift of five red deer from Queen Victoria in 1873.
This historical site has received multiple awards for the adaptive reuse of the dilapidated factory and its contemporary architecture.
Step back in time and explore the historic art gallery today.
