The previous gallery, opened in June 1999 known as the Gallery Hinchinbrook boasted a modern and highly secure exhibition room with specifications of international standard. Gallery Hinchinbrook was situated in the TAFE / Hinchinbrook Shire Library complex on Townsville Road, Ingham which was also opened in 1999. The Gallery was owned by the Barrier Reef Institute of TAFE and was leased and administered by Council, in conjunction with the Friends of Gallery Hinchinbrook Association Inc., a voluntary association.
In March 2011, our new purpose built gallery was opened in the TYTO Wetlands Precinct and is formally known as the "TYTO Regional Art Gallery" with our main gallery named after "John Coburn" a world renowned artist born in Ingham.
The vision for TYTO Regional Art Gallery is to be a focus centre of cultural enrichment, education, inspiration and enjoyment that challenges our community to grow in appreciation of the arts and showcases our cultural diversity.
