Mallacoota Art Space

Located inside the Croajingolong Centre, the vibrant Mallacoota Art Space features the crafts of the town’s impressive local artists.

As Mallacoota’s creative hub, visitors can enjoy exhibits, shop, join workshops, E.J. Brady short story readings, and music events.

Open every day through the holiday season from 10am to 4pm. During the rest of the year, the space remains closed on Mondays and Tuesdays.

E.j. Brady Short Story Competition

Back in the early 1900s, when author Edwin James Brady arrived in Captain Stevenson’s Point, he decided to create a colony of writers and artists.

Charmed by the beauty of Mallacoota, he invited some of the top literary figures of his time to join. This is how Henry Lawson, the acclaimed Australian poet, frequented Edwin’s settlement and wrote one of his most famous poems, Mallaccota Bar.

Every year the annual E.J. Brady short story competition, run by the Mallacoota Arts Council, honours the contribution of these artists to Mallacoota.

Lakeside Studio Gallery

The Lakeside Studio Gallery displays paintings, sculptures, printmaking and photography exhibitions. Located at the end of the Lakeside Pathway, the studio also offers regular printmaking masterclasses.
