The Australian Women’s Weekly: 90 Years of an Australian Icon exhibition

The exhibition is running at Bendigo Art Gallery until August 27.

The Australian Women’s Weekly is the country’s most loved and iconic magazine brand, shaping the lives of Australian women for nine decades and earning a special place in the heart of the nation.

Now, as the official launch of the 90th Birthday festivities, The Weekly has collaborated with Bendigo Art Gallery to create The Australian Women’s Weekly: 90 Years of an Australian Icon exhibition.

Opening on Saturday May 27 and running through to August 27, the first-of-its-kind exhibition will be a celebration of iconic, inspirational, and fun moments in the history of the influential Weekly brand.

Visitors can expect to see gorgeous gowns worn by Mary, Crown Princess of Denmark, Miranda Tapsell and Tina Arena, crafts lovingly stitched by readers, and memorabilia from the trailblazing women who founded and built the Weekly in the 30’s and 40’s.

Plus displays of favourites from our iconic Children’s Birthday Cake Book such as, the Duck, Choo Choo Train and Swimming Pool Birthday Cakes.

Bendigo Art Gallery is located at 42 View Street, Bendigo. The gallery is open seven days, from 10am – 5pm. Details: https://www.bendigoregion.com.au/bendigo-art-gallery/
