The Ngununggula gallery has come out on top at this year's National Trust Heritage Awards.
The premises in Bowral was named as one of seven finalists in the Adaptive Re-Use category.
The winners of the awards across 10 categories were announced today (May 13), at Doltone House in Pyrmont, Sydney.
The region's cultural hub was one of 16 projects that were awarded at the ceremony.
"The winning projects remind us not only of the importance of protecting our shared past, but also the ways in which we can bring heritage to life for all the people of New South Wales to enjoy and explore," said NSW Minister for Environment and Heritage The Hon. James Griffin.
The former dairy and veterinary clinic at Retford Park were preserved and transformed into the Ngununggula's gallery and café.
A third building was also created to hold the Entry Pavillion, amenities and classrooms for workshops.
Stephenson's Mill in Crookwell, and the Walsh Bay Arts Precinct in Millers Point, Sydney, were also winners in the Adaptive Re-Use category.
The National Trust Heritage Awards has been running annually since 1994, and are hosted by the National Trust (NSW) as part of the Australian Heritage Festival.
The award is not the only accolade the gallery has been in the running for - Ngununggula has also been named a finalist in the NSW Architecture Awards, in the Heritage and Public Architecture categories.
The winners from the awards' 12 categories will be announced on July 1, via the Australian Institute of Architects' YouTube Channel.
Category winners will be in the running to win the NSW Architecture Medallion.
