General access and guided tours

The Queensland Art Gallery building opened in 1982 as part of the first stage of South Bank’s Cultural Precinct. In December 2006, a new Robin Gibson-designed entry was added at Stanley Place — a sweeping glass structure through which the public can see into the interior.

‘It is not only a place for the collection and exhibition of our art works, it is a place where the walls and barriers of the Gallery are broken down, where there is a constant source of interchange between the art world and the public.’ – Robin Gibson, architect’s statement. Join one of our passionate and knowledgeable volunteer guides on a 30 to 40 minute highlights tour of the Collection at the Queensland Art Gallery(QAG). Tours depart from the Melbourne Street information desk.
