Cairns Art Gallery is a charming creative space housed in a repurposed heritage building dating back to 1936. This three-storey public gallery is home to both traditional First Nations artworks and contemporary works, allowing visitors to sample the best of the region at the CBD venue.

The legacy of famed First Nations artist Mirdidingkingathi Juwarnda Sally Gabori was recently honoured by her daughters, who created a piece called 'Our Mother's Country' for the FNQ Contemporaries exhibition held throughout summer. Previous exhibitions have included impressive works by Patricia Piccinini and Sir Sidney Nolan. And from Saturday, March 19, you can catch Archie 100: A Century of The Archibald Prize which will feature artworks from every decade of the prestigious Archibald Prize. The gallery also connects to the newly refurbished historic Court House Gallery next door. The best bit? Both galleries have free entry.
