Venue Information

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.
