A gorgeous building in a stunning rural setting - glorious views all around. Certainly a wonderful memorial to Margaret Olley but also an interesting exhibition space as well. Some of the very modern exhibits were somewhat baffling to my eyes but as we know there...More

Well worth the drive to visit this small gallery. The views are great, the exhibits are limited but interesting. Entry is free so discounts are not applicable. Restaurant produces delicious meals.

The view of the Murwillumbah landscape from the gallery is sufficient reason to visit the gallery. This is a seriously good gallery with wonderful artworks professionally curated. The Margaret Olley presentation tops it off.
