Old Fire Station Turned Arts and Volunteer Hub

Recently refurbished, as of 2015, this Redcliffe Art Gallery was once the Old Fire Station. In 2005 it was heritage listed before its closure in 2008, after 59 years of service in protecting the community. The Moreton Bay Regional Council has spent $2 million dollars into turning it into the great arts and volunteer hub that it is today.

Hirers of this facility are rewarded with full use of this hub including its meeting room (which can hold up to 40 people), breakout lounge and kitchenette. It is open for hire from 9:00am to 9:30pm. The gallery shop hours are 10:00am to 3:00pm from Wednesday to Sunday for all members of the public to appreciate.
