Arts patrons can look forward to visiting Toowoomba Regional Art Gallery (TRAG) and Goombungee’s Rosalie Gallery when partial opening hours start next week.
Toowoomba Regional Council Library and Cultural Services portfolio leader Cr Tim McMahon said TRAG and Rosalie Gallery initially would re-open to the public from Tuesday, July 14 and Thursday, July 16 respectively. Crows Nest Regional Art Gallery will remain closed until further notice.
Cr McMahon said the gallery re-openings were following measures outlined in the state government’s recently announced Stage Three COVID-19 Roadmap to Easing Restrictions.
“Council is re-opening the galleries in a staged manner in line with public health and safety requirements to keep our staff and the public free from harm as Coronavirus pandemic restrictions continue to ease,” Cr McMahon said.
“Council will trial opening hours for two weeks at the galleries before assessing whether we can extend the times closer to our regular operating hours,” Cr McMahon said.

Toowoomba Regional Art Gallery, 531 Ruthven Street: From Tuesday, July 14: 10am-4pm from Tuesday to Thursday.
Rosalie Gallery, Goombungee: From Thursday, July 16: 10.30am-3.30pm on Thursday and Friday.
