Incinerator Gallery (Aberfeldie)



The Incinerator Gallery is the City of Moonee Valley's centre for visual arts. It hosts a program of curated exhibitions, art courses and public programs.

The gallery houses the City of Moonee Valley Art Collection and through our two main gallery spaces, we offer a curated exhibition program exhibiting work from established and emerging artists, as well as providing a community access space.

Built in 1929, this striking building was once the Essendon incinerator. It opened in July 1930 and operated until 1942. It was designed by Walter Burley Griffin for the engineering company RIECO and was one of thirteen incinerators built across Australia from 1930 to 1938. Of these, only six remain, with the Essendon Incinerator being the only one in Victoria.

With its blend of architectural influences ranging from the charming Arts and Crafts movement to the dynamic modernism of Art Deco, it is a building of major architectural significance. It is listed with The National trust of Australia, Australian Heritage Commission and Heritage Victoria. It was even included in the list of Victoria's best buildings compiled by the Victorian Chapter of the Royal Institute of Architects in December 2003.

In 2004, the City of Moonee Valley restored the unused building and created the Incinerator Arts Complex with both a theatre and gallery spaces. It is now simply an art gallery dedicated to visual art, ideally located just metres from the banks of the Maribyrnong River and close to Aberfeldie and Maribyrnong Parks and has been renamed The Incinerator Gallery.
