Generating opportunities for locals and visitors to create, share and experience art and culture.

The Platypus Gallery exhibits the work of Forbes Arts Society members, as well as various travelling exhibitions featuring visiting artists. The exhibited works vary greatly from paintings and drawings in all media, ceramics, fine wood turning, jewellery and photography. 

The building itself has had a long history as a pharmacy and prior to that a saddlery stood on the site from the gold rush days.
