The Rose Garden, first established in 1959, is an icon in Benalla. Rose fanciers will find a notable collection of modern varieties, including Australian roses, seldom found in public gardens. The Benalla Art Gallery presents an exhibition program of Australian art in the Bennett Gallery, in addition to the permanent collection which includes elements of the region’s history and recounting an Australian-European settlement story. The collection continues to develop with recent acquisitions including outstanding Indigenous works and contemporary media postmodernist works. The Benalla Costume and Kelly Museum is the only public costume museum of its kind in Victoria. The museum specialises in costumes and local history, including the Ned Kelly Story.
