A great venue for showcasing artworks. Lovely airconditioning and helpful staff! Worth going to on a regular basis as the exhibitions change frequently. Easy access and parking. You can even catch a movie or eat while you are there.

We visited the Art Gallery on an overcast day and enjoyed every minute of it. Staff was helpful with explaining events and there was an opportunity to sign the visitors book - which many did. My wife and I think that new events should be added sooner - say every 2-weeks so that visitors are enticed back.

The Gold Coast City Art Gallery is located in the Gold Coast Arts Centre near the Council Chambers in Surfers Paradise. You need a car or a local Surfside bus to get there. There is usually plenty of outdoor complimentary parking available. Entry to the gallery is free. There is an interesting permanent collection featuring works by such well known... More

This gallery only has a modest amount of space in the Gold Coast Arts Centre but they used it well and there three interesting exhibitions to look at. One was a touring exhibition from the Jam Factory in Adelaide with a beautiful array of contemporary craft and glass work. The second was an exhibition of old watercolours and photos by... More

For a city this size, the exhibits at the gallery are often a disappointment. Over the years, most displays seem superficial and trivial..., kinda like how outsiders view the Gold Coast in general. To see a great art gallery, head south about 60km to the Tweed River Art Gallery in Murwillumbah, NSW.

Great entertainment, great bar and selection of wines and champagnes. Staff was attentive. Bar food available which was great to have with your drinks if peckish. Plenty of parking spaces.

Saw a fantastic exhibition at this public art gallery. It was surround-sound with images of the individual members of the Australian Chamber Orchestra playing their instruments on separate screens that the viewer could manipulate. Inter-active and fantastic. Enjoyable. Nice work.

I took my wife to see a show recently and to avoid the traffic we decided to book at the Arts Cafe. Big Mistake, after waiting in line for around 20 minutes to order we waited another half hour before I enquired at the counter to get a time when our food would be ready. Shortly after complaining our food... More

Since there are no proper museum in Surfer Paradise in Gold Coast, this city art gallery is the only place that I can find. I stayed in Vibe Hotel and discovered thawt it is located not too far away from the hotel. I started to walk along Ferny Drive, turned into Thomas Drive and reached Chevron Island.
