QVMAG's dedicated art gallery at Royal Park in Launceston

About

The Queen Victoria Museum and Art Gallery should be on the top of your places to go in Launceston if you are interested in Tasmanian history, heritage, natural sciences, colonial and contemporary art and they even have a Planetarium! QVMAG is Australia’s largest regional museum and is situated on two key sites: the QVMAG Museum at Inveresk and QVMAG Art Gallery at Royal Park and is proudly operated by the Launceston City Council.

QVMAG’s extensive fine art and decorative arts collections can be found at a dedicated art gallery at Royal Park on the edge of Launceston’s city centre. QVMAG Art Gallery has an extensive colonial art collection with works by John Glover when he was painting the Deddington district in sthe 1840s, Hugh Ramsay and Tom Roberts. Tasmania’s contemporary artists are also strongly represented with large scale artworks by Bea Maddock and Philip Wolfhagen who are painting the landscape today.

The two QVMAG sites are linked by the free Tiger Bus which is an sustainable transport initiative run by the Launceston City Council. The Tiger Bus is available throughout the day to provide easy access to the QVMAG Museum, Art Gallery and Planetarium and other Launceston City Council attractions. Click here for the Tiger Bus route information or please call 03 6323 3000 for more information.
