Venue Information



The Riverway Arts Centre, including Pinnacles Gallery, is still CLOSED due to damage from the unprecedented rain event in 2019.  The Riverway Arts Centre will remain closed until further notice until repairs have been completed and it is safe for public re-entry to the facility.

Pinnacles Gallery is a purpose-built Gallery space within the Riverway Arts Centre in Thuringowa Central.

The Gallery opened in March 1996 as part of the new Thuringowa Library and Council complex, providing a space for the display of a diverse range of art, social history and educational exhibitions to serve the needs of Thuringowa’s residents and visitors.

Pinnacles relocated in 2006 to our current location within the Riverway Arts Centre, becoming the only purpose-built gallery space in Townsville. The Gallery offers a multitude of ways for us to present artwork and has the capacity to deliver multimedia artwork presentations.


We encourage all local artists to sign up to our e-news. Information is sent out about opportunities, proposed exhibitions, professional development programs and expressions of interest for public art commissions.

Artists may also apply for an exhibition in one of many Community Access Spaces, download the pack and form below for more information on these spaces and the requirements for your application:
