Opening late 2024

A permanent, dedicated space for you to experience the Bundanon Collection

Increasing Access

The new Boyd Collection Gallery will enable visitors to access and engage with Bundanon’s rich Art Collection, year-round, ensuring the Art Museum is open continuously for our visitors.


Bundanon’s Next Chapter

The Boyd Collection Gallery is a timely and important addition to Bundanon’s offering, which will elevate the Boyd family’s creative legacy and ensure the Collection is always accessible within the Art Museum. 

Showcasing highlights alongside lesser-known works, the Boyd Collection Gallery will support Bundanon’s artist educators to develop inspiring, multi-generational learning experiences that build a deeper connection to the stories of Bundanon including Australian landscape painting, First Nations stories and the Artists-in-Residence program.

The gallery will build connections between Bundanon’s sites, from the Art Museum to the Homestead and Arthur Boyd’s Studio, and support the exchange and loan of works between Bundanon and its national peers.  

This new gallery space will shape the future of our organisation and share the stories of Bundanon for generations to come.

Safeguard the Boyd Legacy

“I want Bundanon to be accessible to any Australian” – Arthur Boyd

A Significant National Collection

Arthur & Yvonne Boyd’s original gift in 1993 included a significant Collection comprising over 4,000 artworks valued at over $46M, which is now securely stored in the award-winning Art Museum.

Today, the Art Collection consists of works including those collected by and gifted to the Boyds, contemporary work by past artists in residence, commissions, and generous donations.

“This development will provide the public with greater access to Bundanon’s prized Collection, and expand the visitor experience, every week of the year.” – Rachel Kent, CEO

Inspiring Future Generations

Bundanon’s artist educators will draw from the Collection to develop inspiring learning programs that speak to Australian landscape painting, First Nations stories, the Artists-in-Residence program, the natural environment and the Boyd family legacy.


History of the Collection

The Collection offers a window into the philosophy and practice of one of Australia’s most iconic artists.

It reveals Arthur & Yvonne Boyd’s commitment to their family’s artistic legacy, to the physical landscapes of the Bundanon properties on the Shoalhaven River, and to supporting and furthering creative practice across mediums. 

Each year the Collection continues to grow and since 1996 an additional 1,000 works have been added from artists in residence, weaving contemporary practice into the story Bundanon upholds, of the Boyd family and their historic legacy.

This important story, forms a research archive and a reference point for Bundanon’s past, present and future. 

Connecting the past to the present

The Boyd Collection Gallery will build connections with the Bundanon Homestead and Arthur Boyd’s Studio on our adjacent property, giving visitors unique insight into the creative process, resulting artworks, and home of the Boyd family.


Bundanon acknowledges the people of the Dharawal and Dhurga language groups as the traditional owners of the land within our boundaries, and recognises their continuous connection to culture, community and Country.

In Dharawal the word Bundanon means deep valley.
