The original Vasse Felix winery has been preserved as an Art Gallery and here, a seasonal program of exhibitions from the celebrated Holmes à Court Collection is shown. The gallery experience extends to the Vasse Felix grounds where gardens of local flora have been embellished with a sculpture walk comprising works by local artists. The annual Vasse Felix arts calendar features a variety of performance events that draw enthusiasts back to this historic space at every opportunity.

The Holmes à Court Collection started in the early 1960s and grew from the Family’s interest in Australian and Indigenous art. It has steadily developed into an internationally renowned collection that documents many pieces of Australian cultural significance and consists of more than 4,000 registered artworks.
