The Riddoch Arts and Cultural Centre

What makes us unique?

Council has developed a theme for the design, construct, display and activities that underpin the entire The Riddoch Arts and Cultural Centre and the role it plays in building community capacity and learning.

The fundamental question was "What makes Mount Gambier unique?" The answer lies in our volcano – that one natural phenomenon that created the foundation of Mount Gambier and the fundamental elements of Earth – Fire – Water that emerged from the volcano to bring us life. The elements of Earth – Fire – Water are uniquely Mount Gambier and the building features internal and external displays showcasing these elements.

In addition, the Cave Garden environment is transformed at night to tell the unique Dreamtime Stories of our indigenous persons.

The Riddoch Arts and Cultural Centre located at 1 Bay Road is open from 10:00am to 2:00pm Wednesday to Sunday. For more information or to enquire about bookings phone (08) 8721 2563.
