This family-friendly display features works in a wide variety of mediums and applications, and from a range of very talented artists, all who are members of Sculptors Queensland, a not-for-profit organisation based within the grounds of Old Queensland Museum, Bowen Hills.

Nice to know – All of the pieces are available for purchase, with prices and contact information on display.

So, why not make a day of it and grab a bite or a drink while you’re at Portside, or even take in a film at Portside Dendy. There's plenty of parking available, or you can catch the CityCat and disembark at nearby Brett's Wharf. It's also right across the road from Hercules Street Park, which the kids will enjoy.
