Located in Brisbane’s South Bank percent, the Queensland Art Gallery covers 4,700 square meters and it’s the most impressive institution of its kind in the entire city. It houses over 19,000 artworks from Australia and around the world, and it’s best known for its extensive collection of contemporary Asian and Pacific art.
QUT Art Museum
If you’re in the mood for a more intimate, happy-go-lucky experience while in Brisbane, this art museum is the place to be. It showcases the art of Dutch artist Dick Bruna and several more contemporary Australian artists, and it’s the perfect spot for family visits.
