A destination that is a little bit special!

Looking for a day out to remember? Just 49min from Brisbane you will find the town of Dayboro with all the charm of the yesteryear, but with a present-day vibe and uniqueness overflowing. From the scenic drive through lush green pastures and mesmerizing mountains you are instantly taken to another world of peace, tranquility, culture, health and well-being.

With the Dayboro Art Gallery as the hub of your cultural exploration it offers you a unique experience rarely found in many galleries, as it is run by the artists themselves. You have the opportunity to meet and greet, and be inspired by a different artist every day of the week. With a massive cross section of artworks covering most styles and genres your personal tastes will be challenged and expanded.  Being a not-for profit Gallery, the pricing is such that there is something for everyone, and at a quality on par with many a city gallery.

We have many award-winning artists works displayed on our walls, but it’s not just about the gallery, it’s the experience.  To walk the full length of  town is a leisurely short stroll at the most. However, with the massive old figs cushioning your view at one end over the stately Crown Hotel and the renowned living art of Entangle at the other end you owe yourself the stroll. Enjoy the numerous cafes, each offering something worldly different to the other from high teas and book nooks to gluten free and vegan. Not to mention antiques, old style lolly shop, gluten free goods, historical building trail, craft and gift shops. We even have the boys covered, as besides the Historical Hotel, why not get a unique snip and cut-throat face shaves at Dirty Hairy’s Barber Saloon with hot towel and if you’re lucky a cold beer thrown in.

If you’re having way too much fun to head back yet and haven’t had the chance to do the rainforest walk and fresh rockpool swim up the mountains why not stay the night. Amongst your mountain accommodation choices is a walk with the llamas at Dayboro Cottages and wine and dine at the award-winning Ocean View Estate Winery just up the road.

After your restful slumber in nature, come back down and collect your selected piece of memorable artwork from the gallery, lovingly wrapped and ready to go. Hope to see you sometime soon,
