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. 

HBRG is building a national profile based on an exciting exhibition program alongside a number of strategic initiatives including the Fiona Foley Residency and followed by Girra: 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’s 2022-2026 Strategic Plan details specific targets to create an inclusive and diverse gallery for all Fraser Coast residents and visitors to be proud of and enjoy.

HBRG continues to work alongside the Butchulla community in delivering the goals of 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.
