Orbost Exhibition Centre
The Orbost Woodworkers and artisans have built a $2 million Exhibition Centre, which is a work of art in itself.
Designed to showcase local timbers, the Orbost Exhibition Centre (OEC) is the permanent home of the National Collection of Wood Design which features wood art. 1-3 pieces are added to the collection every year though an Acquisition Prize.
The OEC has a large retail area full of wooden and other artworks - sculptures, bowls, boxes, furniture, jewellery and other unique craftwork all made by local artists.
The OEC has a gallery featuring different monthly art exhibitions and will, and includes the exceptional Talking Wall Project open - a visual story of the Snowy River from its beginnings - thousands of years ago - to modern time, painted by local artists of Orbost and surrounds.
A free tea/coffee/biscuit is included in the entry fee of $4.
The Orbost Exhibition Centre houses great wood and art and is a must for inclusion on anyone's itinerary for the region.
