Eating Out

Muswellbrook Regional Arts Centre

Established in 1976, this beautiful gallery is housed in a circa 1871 building at the corner Bridge & William streets, Muswellbrook. An easy 30 minute drive from Baerami Pines Retreat, it showcases a collection of old and new artworks, as well as travelling shows reflecting the essence of rural Australia.

Of special significance is the gallery’s rotating permanent exhibition of extensive works donated by the local renowned artist Max Watters. Reflecting Watters’ representations of landscapes & infrastructures of the local district, it captures places no longer seen, while also showcasing a history of Australian avant garde works. Watters is well known locally, not only for his art, but also his commitment to the community.

I would thoroughly recommend spending some time at Baerami Pines and no doubt, like us, you will find it a sin to leave this haven.

I just wanted to let you know how much we all enjoyed our long weekend at the Baerami Pines Retreat. Moya
The sense of relaxation starts even before you spot the sweet little church nestled on the hill. Jocelyn
Everything about Baerami 'works' a perfect getaway from the hustle and bustle, a wonderful haven in which to relax and rejuvenate.
