Lake Macquarie City Art Gallery

Gallery temporary closure and renovations

The Gallery will be closed temporarily from April to November 2019 while we undergo an exciting $2.3 million transformation. During this time, you can still enjoy the Sculpture Park, as well as our art classes that are continuing in new locations.

More information


Located on the shores of Australia’s largest coastal saltwater lake, the leafy grounds of the award-winning Lake Macquarie City Art Gallery boast state-of-the-art seminar facilities, a sculpture park, mosaic pathways and the historic Awaba House Restaurant Cafe. Lake Macquarie is unique among regional galleries due to its location and quality of programming. Touring shows alternate with gallery-curated exhibitions featuring nationally significant artists, many of whom share a connection with the Hunter.

Contemporary visual arts, craft and design practice are the main focus of our exhibitions, and respectful Aboriginal projects are a strong component of the program.

The gallery is located at First Street Booragul and can be reached easily via the lake foreshore cycleway, the water or by public transport.
