The McClelland Gallery and Sculpture Park is gem of a spot in Langwarrin, South East Melbourne.

If you're looking for a place to take your children for a run around, and a beautiful spot to immerse yourselves in serenity, this is it.

The Gallery was established in 1971 under the terms of the Will of Annie May (Nan) McClelland in honour of her brother Harry McClelland; an artist and philanthropist who owned the property and played an instrumental role in the development of the arts community in Victoria. You can read more on the history of the gallery here.

Take in the works of local and international sculptors and artists in the outdoor gardens. There is an easy bush walk trail to follow on foot, on which you take in sculptured creations installed throughout the circuit. Be aware the grounds are a little bumpy if you are taking your pram.



As well as the 70 or so outdoor sculptures to enjoy, there are three indoor exhibition spaces to explore, which accommodate sculpture, painting, works-on-paper and photography work.



Make a day of it, and bring a picnic while you sit shaded under one of the many trees scattered throughout the well-maintained gardens. Take some bird feed or defrosted peas for the kids to feed the resident ducks at park's picturesque lake.



Alternatively, you can buy lunch in the popular McClelland Gallery Cafe, and enjoy views of the grounds in a relaxed atmosphere. There is a small souvenir shop, selling a number of arts, crafts and gift cards made by local artists.
