  • It is open every day from 10.00 to 17.00. free admission. Interesting part of local art. Very nice instead temporary exhibitions. Very nice facility. Extensive shop and nice cafes where you can sit in a truly relaxing environment. To visit. Time to visit 1:30 Perhaps most beautiful contemporary art gallery located there near 3 min.

  • I loved Yayoi Kusama exhibition which ran for 3 months until February 2018 so much I went twice. It was free but some are not. There is a Childrens Art Centre which should keep the children happy too....  more »

  • Couldn’t be a better position by the Brisbane River in a courtyard style shady garden Overlooking all the action of the riverside expressway, boats and people and cyclists Views forever !!! Vibrant friendly staff and customers Delicious coffee
  • Bit hit and miss as the menu options are always changing to the themes of some of the gallery attractions. This can be both interesting and frustrating at times. For the most part, the coffee is good and there's usually ample seating and a nice view/atmosphere. The staff is generally polite if a little frazzled. On the other hand, the queues can get very long with long waiting times and, as this is a kid friendly/family friendly place, there are usually a lot of small children running about. Not the best place for an after gallery visit coffee but not the worst either.
  • Great location. Coffee could be better ;)
  • The share plates are easily enough for 3. We had the pork belly which was delicious and the potato skins were excellent.
  • We got the kids burger (we’re adults though) and they were just the right size
