About Us


Horsham is the largest population centre in the Wimmera, in Western Victoria (Australia). It sits on relatively flat plains that stretch from the Grampians mountains in the south towards the Mallee to the north. The area was the traditional home of the Wotjobaluk, Jaadwa, Jadawadjali, Wergaia and Jupagalk peoples. The Wimmera river which runs through the town is the largest land-locked river in the world, eventually disappearing into terminal lakes and dunes. In the west of the municipality is Mt Arapiles, a rugged escarpment favoured by the world's rockclimbers and the small town of Natimuk. To the south of Horsham are the towns of Laharum, Dadswell&#65533s Bridge and Wartook Valley. Most of the people in the municipality reside in Horsham and the town and area have a thriving arts culture. The area sustains three arts festivals, the community strong Horsham Art is &#65533Festival, the exciting celebration of ability, Awakenings, and the spectacular Nati Frinj. As well, there are galleries, theatres and community arts groups. Under this umbrella of this website are gathered the various organisations that make up the arts community within the Horsham Rural City Council. These include Horsham Regional Arts Association (HRAA), Art is, Wesley PAC, the Horsham Regional Art Gallery, Horsham Film Society, Horsham Regional Arts Council, the Nati Frinj (and Arapiles Community Theatre), the Goat Gallery (Natimuk) and the Maker's Gallery
