Situated in a beautiful building, the Regional Gallery never disappoints. Exhibitions have a local flavour as well as featuring important Australian and international artists - and always offer something intetesting. The shop is packed with temptations, and Perrota's restaurant outside on the deck is perfect for breakfast, lunch or dinner.

This is very nice art gallery with a presentation of new art being created (along with some more traditional) in Australia. It is centrally located, has a great cafe attached, and has a very nice gift shop.

Free entry, a comprehensive exhibition of beautiful and evocative work by Roy McIvor, a lovely building and at the end a little shop and a good cafe - what's not to like.

Some of the travelling exhibitions are great, like the Goya one, but otherwise why pay for a pretty average selection/collection....If the gallery were free I am sure more people would be interested.

The gallery is well set out with interesting artists, but it is impossible to enjoy and study the works due to the sounds of the audio visual installations. It would be more enjoyable for all if headphones were made available rather than the booming sounds taking over the entire room. Very distracting and overbearing for the space. Not peaceful at all.
