In the heart of the historic port of Echuca
The Foundry Arts Space was opened in December 2015 by the Echuca Moama Arts Initiative (EMAI). 
The Foundry Arts Space is situated on the edge of the Murray River in the popular, historic Port of Echuca and is a unique gallery, workshop and
performance venue operating out of the old Freeman’s Foundry which stands on the site of the original Hopwood’s Store, one of the first buildings in Echuca.
Getting here
Echuca is located approximately 200km north of Melbourne. The Foundry Arts Space is situated in the historic Port of Echuca at 17 Murray Esplanade. By car the estimated travelling time is 3 hours. Trains and busses run daily from Southern Cross Station in Melbourne with a variety of regional routes. Walking from the Echuca Station takes approximately 17 minutes and from the Echuca Information Centre approximately 10 minutes.  

There is ample free parking surrounding the Port of Echuca.

A bit of site history. 
The original Hopwood's Store later became Freeman's Foundry and today is an active community hub for arts and culture of the region.
Henry Hopwood's iron store was erected on the site in 1855 and was one of Echuca's first buildings. It extended 50 feet along Murray Esplanade and faced the small street now known as Little Hopwood Street, the focus of early Echuca. Made from fabricated imported iron, the store had a distinctive curved roof and was used during the 1850's as auction rooms and from 1866 as a ships chandlery.It was removed about 1900.

In 1897 Freeman & Olsen established their Border Engineering & Bicycle Works, (later Freeman's Foundry) mainly to service the river trade. The present building was erected in 1952 and remained in use as a foundry until 1972

The Foundry Arts Space, was opened in 2015 by Echuca Moama Arts initiative (EMAI). It is a unique and vibrant gallery, workshop and performance venue.
