Roxy Gallery -Kyogle

##NOTE 18/10/21: With the re-opening after Covid Lockdown, and with the new NSW  PublicHealth regulations to help NSW get into business again the Roxy Gallery have reduced their opening hours. Currently open Wed-Fri 10am-3pm. Thank you for your understanding.

 

When you’re visiting Kyogle and discovering its rich tapestry of natural wonders, a visit to the Roxy Gallery in the main street is a must. As of March 2019 the gallery is located in a bigger new space, upstairs in the KMI, (Kyogle Memorial Institute Hall) with access via a lift in the new foyer entrance (2nd shop front from Stratheden st, next to Gateway Office Supplies).

The Roxy Gallery is a joint initiative between Kyogle Council and Kyogle and District Arts Group. The gallery is kept open by volunteers from the Kyogle and District Arts Group and the Kyogle Council employes a part-time Gallery Curator/Director. The aim of the Roxy Gallery is to provide local and regional artists with a professionally managed exhibition space, and provide the community with a cultural space where they can engage in contemporary art, resources and information. The Roxy Gallery holds twelve ever-changing exhibitions a year of mixed media, that support and promote cultural diversity in the creative fields, usually changing on a monthly basis. It is a great place for some peace and quiet, have a look around or come and sit and use the internet or sit on the verandah and watch the world go by.

The next piece to take pride of place in your own collection could well be from here.
Exhibitions are renewed approx each 4 weeks.
New opening hours are Wed-Sat 10am-3pm and Sun 10am-2pm. Please sign the visitors book when visiting.

A visit here is a great place to experience first hand the latest technology available to the Dairy Industry. It is the first dairy in the region with state of the art computer controlled equipment where milking takes place 24/7. The cows decide when to visit the robotic milker. Because this is a working farm bookings are essential.

History of Kyogle Tour

Many towns have stories behind their unique buildings, parks and community spaces; Kyogle is one of those towns.

Stop in at the Malcolm Wallis Visitor Information Centre and pick up your copy of the self guided Foundation Stone Detective Tour. The tour will take you to 8 sections of the Kyogle township and, if your eyes are sharp enough, you will find a collection of 23 marble and brass plaques, foundation stones and dedication plates that have been placed around the town over the decades, and be able to answer all the questions on the back of the tour map.

A great activity for kids and for those keen on a good walk around the town.
