All galleries and facilities are wheelchair accessible and a limited number of wheelchairs are available from reception. Assistance dogs are welcome. Baby-changing facilities available. The Gallery changes all of the exhibitions three times a year. During changeover times, some galleries have limited access or are closed to enable artwork installation work. For visitors who experience sensitivity to high levels of noise, light, and smells, Sensory Maps have been developed to help indicate potential areas of high or low sensory activity.


Two designated parking spaces are available for people with limited mobility. These are located outside the Gallery entrance on Queen Street. Display of a mobility parking card is required for vehicles stationed in these car parking spaces. Please note, the surface between the footpath and the road is not level and may require you to travel to find the nearest ramp.
