We visited the gallery recently to check out an exhibition. I was disappointed with the exhibition - for one thing there were far too many works jammed in. Perhaps less walk around space and more hanging area would work but it was impossible to appreciate any of the better art works and the groupings seemed to be all wrong. I... More

We visited the gallery recently but I guess it depends on the genre of art which interests you. We didn't find it very exciting. However there is a comfortable movie theatre there and the centre and a cafe in the precinct.

A little bit hard to find in the complex, clearer signage would have helped. The exhibition we saw was excellent and the volunteers were helpful. Better advertising would bring more visitors.

Nice and relaxing visit. Some very nice paintings and a lovely needlework exhibition. Caught the bus back to surfers and got off at chevron island and had a quick look at the shops. Excellent pie at Goldsteins Bakery. So popular they sell out and I had to wait 10 minutes for a new batch. Worth it though!

Food selection is poor and service is chaotic to say the least. As a restaurant adjoining the actual art centre where good show are featured it should be a much better standard.

Art, it is said, is in the eye of the beholder. You really can't rely on another persons opinion...but I'll give mine, anyway. This is the most boring art gallery that I have ever visited. That's it!

This is a small gallery but has a lovely relaxing atmosphere. You can sit & relax & just enjoy the artworks without being rushed along as you are in the larger galleries. Well worth the visit to the Arts Centre on Gold Coast. We took in a movie, the Art Gallery & lunch at the Café located there which was... More

It is a quiet spot and has some art works which some folk really were getting excited about, we liked it as well, although it did feel empty somehow. We did not see the theatres and it seemed very quiet there as well. But we did find a great opportunity to have a quiet coffee, looking back to the city... More

You wouldn't think the Gold Coast really had an artistic bone in its body if you view the place superficially, but it DOES - and here is the first place to start your discovery.
