A Celebration of Local Art, Garden Fun and Nostalgia.

BAAG is turning 50 and you are invited to join us in a celebration of local art, garden fun and nostalgia. BAAG has been an icon in Melbourne for the last 50 years. Bulleen Nursery started in 1967, then Bruce came along in 1982 and took over what was soon to become Bulleen Art & Garden. There have been many changes, a lot of gardening and a lot of fun over the years.

To celebrate this historic milestone we will be having a birthday party on Thursday 30th November exclusively for you guys… our BAAG garden club and gallery members. This will also be the official launch of our brand-new Sculpture Garden. Numbers are limited on Thursday night, we would really appreciate it if you could RSVP for catering purposes. You can do so by filling in the short form below.

As a big thank you for all your support over the many years we will also be holding free talks and workshops throughout the weekend, as well as loads of amazing specials.

See you there!
