  • Great to see a place dedicated for the assistance of local artists. Who knows what you can find in a shop like this, maybe the next Rembrandt and a staggering fortune to go with that. Seriously...  more »
  • the Drill Hall has a wonderful selection of artwork by local artists - all reasonably priced, and the volunteers who work there are very friendly.  more »
  • A terrific place for local artists work (and others) including pottery, framed assorted topics including flora and fauna, lazy Susan's in lovely glass patterned blow-wear with gold patterns throughout the piece! The location sometimes has 'openings' that include live local talented musicians/singers, a blazing fire, eats and drinks and an open art gallery. Worth a visit as the staff are helpful too.
  • Wonderful little hidden gem in Townsville down by the strand! Well worth a visit to the art studio and a yoga class as well if you have time :)
