“Broad Church Art Museum”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 11, 2013

Interesting exhibits of Australian and international art, spanning historical through to Modern and Contemporary Art. Well organised and in fairly interesting buildings and in proximity to several other museums and the Southbank complex. As such, a lot to see and a very good way to spend the day (or days). As to content, generally engaging and well curated, but kind of wished for something a bit more challenging at times.

A good mix and a very interesting way to spend a day.

Cafes not bad (the best seems to open on to the sculpture terrace).

Tip: if driving, use the car-parks near the Southbank shops as they seem a lot cheaper than parking under places like the convention centre.

“Great selection”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 8, 2013

Part of a wonderful complex of museums and galleries on the river. The Science Museum is great for adults and kids. The Art gallery is cool in terms of temperature and cool in the contents and design. Well worth a couple of hours. The rest of the complex will fill at least a full half day.

“Most enjoyable”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 3, 2013

Not great art gallery people but we really enjoyed our visit. It is a lovely space and the cafe and garden area and water features are delightful. It was also great to wander around without large crowds and see the works of some well known names in Australian art.

“STUNNING GALLERY IN BRISBANE CITY”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 2, 2013

Apart from the excellent art displayed here - the gallery is an architectural masterpiece with lovely places to sit outside and in.
A short walk takes you from the top of the mall across the bridge to the gallery. Just another wonderful site to see in Brisbane.
