Creativity is what defines the Noosa Region, making way for private and public art galleries that are spread across the bustling streets and markets. Wandering through Noosa, you'll find a multitude of art galleries to suit everything from fine art to local artisans specialising in ceramics, jewellery, and prints. With a climate that supports the arts, integrating art galleries into your stay will become somewhat of a natural pastime.
Perhaps the most well-known art gallery in the area is the Noosa Regional Art Gallery that overlooks the river in Tewantin. Serving as the epitome of local art, they have been supporting local artists and artisans with a range of exhibitions and a gift shop since 1981. As a hub for Australian art, adding this gallery to your list is a lesson in history and culture, just as it is leisure.
For something entirely unique, making a trip to Buderim to see Art Nuvo is a must. Locally curated art sits in a refined gallery amongst the valley. There are other small galleries along the region that you'll find, just pay attention to hours of operation, as many will be closed on Sundays or Mondays. If you’d like your art served with a side of spectacular views of Lake Baroon, visit The Secret Gallery in Montville for an artistic side of the hinterland.
In Noosa, head to Hearts and Minds on Hastings Street for art in forms of the contemporary, jewellery, furniture and pottery. Take part in your own version of an art crawl thanks to the large number of commercial galleries that wind in and out of Hastings Street. The Eumundi Markets held every Wednesday and Saturday morning hosts local artisans and their crafts for truly unique trinkets, gifts, and pieces that embody the spirit of the area.
Art inspired by its location, its roots, and its environment is at the very heart of the culture that Noosa gives, and a trip there wouldn’t be complete without partaking in its relics. Peruse many of the art galleries in the area for an experience that may spark creativity even within yourself.
