The Gladstone Regional Art Gallery & Museum was established in 1985 and is a community cultural initiative funded by the Gladstone Regional Council. It is dedicated to promoting art and heritage for the communities of the Gladstone Region and Central Queensland, and act as custodians for the preservation and display of the region’s history and cultural heritage.
Housed in the Heritage Listed old Gladstone Town Hall with a purpose-built extension, the Gallery & Museum is linked by a glass bridge walkway that accommodates the 19th Century marble statue of the region’s namesake, William Ewart Gladstone. The historic Town Hall building was erected during the Economic Depression in 1934, while the new O’Connell wing was added in 2003 and boasts a dramatic aluminium and steel installation on its façade, 41°24’12.2”N 2°10’26.5”E. This wonderful sculptural artwork is by local artist, Margaret Worthington, and is inspired by the harbour and shipping charts of Port Curtis.
Entry to the Gallery & Museum is via Goondoon Street, where ramp access is available. Admission is FREE.
