Two, vibrant arts spaces are operated by the Bundaberg
Regional Council located in the Bundaberg CBD and main street of Childers.
Bundaberg Regional Art Gallery (BRAG) is located in the
heart of Bundaberg city and showcases local artists, amongst a suite of
exhibitions drawn from local, state and national artists within three unique
exhibition spaces – Gallery One, The Vault (on floor level) and Gallery Two
A new addition is the “Artist of the Month” wall which features
unique artists from around the region. The building is iconic for many reasons
and currently features on the Barolin Street side the design and inspiration taken from local
artist Florence Broadhurst and on the adjacent Quay Street side the work of Tina Harada (which also resides as part of the galleries collection). BRAG hosts a range of events, workshops, talks and
educational programs throughout the year and has a team of eight and many
dedicated volunteers who work behind the scenes to make it all happen.
additionally has an access studio which is a great workshop space and an
Artists Studio where visiting artists take up residence throughout their
exhibition at various times throughout the year.
Some of the exhibition spaces
(dependant on what is exhibiting at the time) are also available to hire for
special corporate and social functions.
BRAG is open Monday to Friday 10am to 5pm, Saturday &
Sunday 11 am to 3pm.

historic Palace Building in Churchill Street, sharing the space alongside the
Palace Memorial in memory of the lives tragically lost in the Childers

exhibitions from artists both locally and from across Australia and features an
Emerging Artist space alongside the main gallery space. You will find Charlie
