We know that tourism attracts visitors to our region who spend money and contribute to our economic growth and the well-being of our business community. Data shows total tourism expenditure in Victoria was $35.0billion in the year ending March 2023, an increase of 113% compared to the year ending March 2022.
A new attraction for visitors to Castlemaine is the Bromley Art Museum at the Old Castlemaine Gaol. This is an extraordinary reimagining of a significant heritage site.
Owners David & Yuge Bromley describe their collection as “deeply personal and diverse; the rattling minds of two people who are pure and simply consumed with art and creative output. We wanted to shift the axis of what the Gaol was known for, a place of despair, sadness and trauma into a place that evoked a sense of life, joy and art.”
Come and see it for yourself and hear the latest news and developments from BMA.

BMA’s event at the Old Castlemaine Gaol was terrific. Such a delight to see the art collection and chat to people in the business community. Here’s a link to more photos captured on the night by Craig Gaston.
