Art Galleries in Cairns
A great way to understand the cultural aspects of Cairns is to visit the Cairns Regional Gallery and the many smaller art galleries and boutiques around the city. As you can imagine the region acts as a spectacular backdrop for all kinds of artists so the variety of artforms on show is staggering. Choose from oil on canvas, ceramics, glassware, sculpture and photography to take home.
There are many well established and up coming Indigenous artists in Cairns and the vibrancy and difference they bring to the art scene is fantastic. You will see wonderful creations where ancient styles meet new world techniques. You can have the opportunity to purchase these pieces from approved galleries and even direct from the artists themselves.
