Cairns Regional Gallery - Review
Not only is the Cairns Regional Gallery a prime destination for all things art, the building it’s housed is a historic landmark. Home to some of the exquisite historical and contemporary art from artists home and away, the Gallery has a majority of its exhibits from the Far North of Queensland. The building, a government building in its glory days is two storied constructed from red brick and enforced with steel and concrete. Recognized as one of the most historically valuable museums, the Cairns Regional Gallery maintains a controlled environment and temperature to best preserve the works of art.

Cairns Regional Gallery, Cairns Reviews
Fantastic every time I visit. Such refreshment to the soul. David Griggs exhibition was cool. So was the 15' high tapestry of a woman in a white dress. And, the top attic- style gallery nearly always seems dedicated to women's craft - pottery, textiles, ceramics, food gathering quality.
Wow! I will confess that out biggest motive for going here was having a bit of free time around tours, but I really enjoyed the galleries and works. Great focus on indigenous perspectives and mix of styles. The gift shop had lots of unique souvenirs, too. Well worth your visit and your donation in lieu of an admission fee.
Small but high quality gallery. Excellent contemporary and some traditional indigenous art and culture. Totally worth 1-2 hours
Small but very great! Personally wanted see the exhibition starting after my departure. "Continental Drift" Unfortunately this was "future exhibition" but luckily could see part of this - very impressive Small but their exhibition was very distinctive to any other art gallery
Well presented exhibitions. Lovely old building and friendly staff.
