The Riddoch Arts and Cultural Centre is one of the most exciting developments in Mount Gambier in recent times. The building and surrounds offer a wonderful opportunity for visitors and residents alike to learn about our local history and culture.
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.
