Our Vision

Hervey Bay Regional Gallery (HBRG) is a destination gallery, featuring a curated programme hosting national touring exhibitions alongside our own internally curated shows, focusing on hyper-local themes with a universal meaning for contemporary audiences, local and visiting alike. 

We will be building our national profile with a number of exciting initiatives commencing with the inaugural Fiona Foley Residency and followed by the launch of the Fraser Coast National Art Prize in 2023. In addition to touring exhibitions we will be focussed on exhibiting – and building – the Fraser Coast Regional Council Fine Art Collection featuring works by artists working in the region alongside some of the nation's top artists.

HBRG has recently released our 2022-2026 Strategic Plan which details our specific targets to create an inclusive and diverse gallery for all Fraser Coast residents and visitors to enjoy.

HBRG has worked alongside the Butchulla community in developing the strategic plan with a vision of respecting that the gallery's stands on Butchulla country. Our programming aims to connect our audience with Butchulla community and storytelling.
