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.
Pinnacles Gallery can be found at the Riverway Art Centre, across from the TicketShop box office.
