Wheeler’s helps to launch our Exhibition Centre with style!

All our exhibitions will be in one central location for your convenience this year!

Every year local artists and makers display their creations and take part in a number of Whale Festival sponsored art competitions and exhibitions.

This year we will have six exhibitions combined in one location to showcase the work of artisans and locals alike.

The exhibition launch is on Friday November 2nd at 5:30pm and is supported by Wheeler’s Seafood Restaurant and Takeaway.

Enjoy the art with live music, drinks, nibbles and a taste of Wheeler’s Sydney Rock Oysters harvested in our pristine local waters.

Competition winners will be announced at the opening at 6:00pm.

Stay around for a inspiring talk from Champion Woodchopper Laurence O’Toole at 6:45pm.

The Wheeler’s Exhibition Centre will be open Saturday 9:30am-4:00pm and Sunday 9:30am-3:00pm.
