Great Rockhampton talent

Local artists displayed on the first floor. So many talented artists exhibited. Unfortunately, the ground floor was out of bounds due to a change of exhibition. Maybe, next time!

A nice little gallery, could be more pieces but what they have are good. This is a nice little oasis on the river bank, recommended

This is a very interesting and professional curation. Short but very sweet. Inspiring! A gorgeous setting by the river. Easy access. Friendly staff.

It's too easy to bag small galleries and museums for their small collections and often refusal to move beyond their 4 walls. At first glance you might think this gallery suffers from 'small townitis' as well. But, this gallery has a long history of stepping beyond its boundaries and supporting the local artists as well as occasionally testing the waters... More

Entry was free, we made a small donation to their donation box. There were some interesting displays when we went and all were labelled very informatively. Its a nice building and was a pleasant way to spend a rainy afternoon :)

I visited the art gallery today as part of my 24hour whistle stop tour of Rockhampton and was very impressed! From the second I walked in, the staff were particularly friendly and informative. I enjoyed the galleries, particularly the children/teen reflective Impressionism tour. The gallery was prestige and I would recommend that everyone takes time to visit this attraction whilst...

It has three galleries that I saw, each one quite small, it also has a small gallery shop filled with manufactured items, this was quite disappointing, would have expected it to be filled with local artists work! I always visit each towns galleries/museums whenever possible. The... More

Mum and I normally love art galleries so we automatically went to it in Rocky. However, we were quite disappointed. The staff were not friendly and huffed and puffed when we asked them questions. The displays were all modern art - some actually quite crude and offensive. We probably spent 10 minutes or so in there and then gave up... More

We had a lovely day looking around the art gallery. It is set out beautifully and was very interesting. They also had some great activities for the kids to do. We expected to drop in and out, but ended up spending hours there.

Good place to spend a few hours at the art exhibition. Great location on the bank of the Fitzroy River. Next to the Pilbeam Theatre, and Delizie restaurant. Credit to a provincial town to have such great art gallery.
