They have some wonderful exhibits from a broad range of the arts. It would be great if there were more eclectic pieces and to showcase more local artisans.

This regional gallery is a real surprise. I'm a regular visitor and I'm constantly surprised by the standard of the regular collection works and visiting exhibitions. I think this is one of the most under-promoted experiences in Rockhampton. Everyone should visit - there is so much to see!

A regional gallery and Australian collection to be proud of. Well done Rockhampton and Rex Pilbeam. To be recommended.

We decided to have a look last minute and it was a great idea. The art Deco 'Dreaming of Deco' exhibition was beautiful, they even had some Laliques and Tiffanys. There was another modern art exhibition upstairs with 50s homeware items. The staff was very nice and you can feel the place is well looked after. They have some interesting... More

Enjoyed touring the art gallery offering a mix of arts and crafts. Free entrance and a tour that last around half a hour as the gallery is not huge. This offers a nice cultural experience to be enjoyed in a reasonable amount of time

What a pleasant meander! We dropped in & enjoyed the Art Deco & artwork display. It's free entry & worth a look. Have a cuppa or something to eat at Cafe Bliss across the road afterwards (it's not much to look at from the outside but is lovely inside & has great, reasonably priced coffee/food).

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!

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
