Free! To see these rare WW1 soldiers (mostly Australian) portrayed from lost glass photographic plates was an experience I will not forget. Highly recommended for anyone with an interest in history or photography.

Came in for the Da Vinci Machines display and was very impressed with the layout of the gallery and with the easily accessible displays. I found out after we left there was a mini-theatre inside. Great location with the pool and cafe next door.

From the Mona Lisa exhibit to The bicycle you will Be enthralled. A great activity for a hot and rainy day. I met a friend I the cafe and had a great afternoon. Thoroughly recommended.

I was impressed with this art gallery and really only visited because I was going for a swim and walk around Riverway. What a surprise to find a fantastic exhibition of works on Captain Cook. I spent a long time in this wonderful place.

Quite small but well worth the effort. The exhibition on when I visited was by Year 11-12 students - amazing. Always love the work by this age group & this one was up with the best. Go - you won't regret it.

Its a place to explore when taking the family to the public pool. Its a great little complex that the government has set up. Worth sticking your head in to have a look around if you are there. A lot of local art displayed when we visited

Currently an old watercolour display with many of the paintings of older times in Qld, very interesting to read up the descriptions of the paintings. Always enjoy this gallery as close to Riverway walkway so a nice stroll before or after is a must. Shame the cafe next door has such poor opening hours as a Cup of Coffee would... More

Hi SteeveGee, Thank you so much for your in-depth and positive review. We're really glad you enjoyed your time, and also enjoyed 'Transparent', which was touring here from QAGOMA! It really is a shame about the lack of food and coffee options at Riverway when the C Bar is closed. It isn't the same to bring your own food and... More
