Visiting and Access Information
Discover Vienna in Melbourne
Having left their life in Vienna behind, the Duldig family tried to recreate a piece of Vienna in their Melbourne home. The Duldig Studio as it stands today has been left intact by the Duldig family and highlights the resilience, talent and ingenuity of these Austrian-Australian artists. The Studio continues to support their vision of a sculpture garden, and a full time Sculptor in Residence. Our exhibitions and Heritage Rooms share an inspiring migration story told through art.
