About us

Noosa Regional Gallery is the leading public gallery on the Sunshine Coast in Queensland, Australia. Located on the picturesque Noosa River in Tewantin and just a short stroll from Noosa Marina restaurants and cafes and Tewantin’s main shopping precinct, Noosa Regional Gallery presents a diverse program of contemporary exhibitions featuring local, national and international artists, matched with a suite of public programs including artist talks, masterclasses and workshops for all ages.
