Theatres & Galleries
The City of Townsville has a vibrant and active theatre and arts community.
Council has two premier theatres, the Townsville Civic Theatre and the Riverway Arts Centre. Both venues offer a range of entertainment and special events and provide an environment to further develop performing arts in Townsville and the North.
We also own and operate two premier regional galleries, Perc Tucker Regional Gallery in the city’s CBD, and Pinnacles Gallery located within the Riverway Arts Centre. These venues host a selection of exhibitions, artist talks, workshops and other events and displays for a wide audience of locals and visitors to the region.
Council would like to work with you to develop a program that reflects the city’s strengths, creativity and thriving talents complemented by a range of high quality experiences and programs from outside the region.
