The first Australian 9 by 5 Impression Exhibition was an Art Exhibition in Melbourne, Australia. The exhibition was opened on 17 August 1889 in Buxton’s Rooms on Swanston Street and featured 183 works; the majority of which were painted by the

Australian impressionists:   Tom Roberts, Charles Conder and  Arthur Streeton.

The exhibition was named for the dimensions of most of the paintings  9 by 5 inches (23 cm × 13 cm), the size of a cigar box lid upon which on many of the works were painted.
