Lake Macquarie City Art Gallery is an exceptional cultural and tourist destination. Beautifully located on the shores of Lake Macquarie, the unique precinct embraces expansive leafy grounds, a sculpture park and an award-winning exhibition facility with a national reputation.

Strong and respectful Aboriginal projects and exhibitions are integrated within the program.

The gallery shop offers a unique selection of the highest quality handcrafted ceramics, glass, jewellery and textiles, as well as books, catalogues, cards, novelty items and exhibition-related merchandise. Featured are crafts people from the Hunter and Central Coast regions along with work by established and emerging craft practitioners from further afield.
