About Us

Hinchinbrook Regional Arts Assoc Inc is a “not for profit” community art group. Our group aims to encourage and promote the creation of art and craft for both sale and pleasure.

The Cardwell Gallery & Gift Shop is located just off the Bruce Highway in beautiful Cardwell by the Sea. We are easy to find in the historic School of Arts building right next to the Cardwell library, within the Cardwell Cultural & Historic Precinct. Our gallery showcases an ever changing collection of wonderful and unique local art and craft.

The ArtWorks has also now been established as our workshop space - located at the western side of Cardwell Sports ground. A program of workshops are run throughout the year and a weekly art group meets to paint, sketch and draw every Thursday - Art from the Start

Tropical north Queensland is an inspirational place for artists.

We are fortunate to have many talented local artisans who create their works of art in many different ways; from artists in glass, wonderfully imaginative potters, artisans in timber, jewellery makers, wildlife artists, oil painters, artists in acrylic, pastel, water colour and graphite, authors and poets - we are proud to present them all.


Cardwell Gallery is the home of Hinchinbrook Regional Arts inc. - a not for profit organisation run entirely by volunteers.
