Pinnacles Gallery opened in March 1996 as part of the new Thuringowa Library and Council complex. The Gallery provided a space for the display of a diversity of art, social history and educational exhibitions to serve the needs of Thuringowa’s residents and visitors.
Pinnacles moved in 2006 to our current location - a purpose-built gallery within the Riverway Arts Centre – the only purpose-built gallery building in Townsville. The space offers a multitude of ways for us to present artwork and has the capacity to deliver multimedia artwork presentations.
Pinnacles Gallery is in the Riverway Art Centre in Thuringowa Central, and is Townsville's only purpose-built gallery space.
