Macleay Island Arts Complex

MIAC is a non-profit Arts organisation based on Macleay Island in a splendid position overlooking the water of Moreton Bay.

We offer pottery, painting, and now printing at our new Print studio as well as other classes. Our beautiful Gallery promotes and sells member’s work, and is available for hire by both Members and Non Members (who naturally pay a higher price) for Exhibitions.

Check out the Events Section for more information on new and exciting exhibitions and workshops.

Apart from major Exhibitions, our Gallery displays ever-changing showings of member’s work and NORMAL OPENING HOURS OF THE GALLERY ARE EVERY WEEKEND 10 AM TO 3 PM. However, if members are working at the Complex they will always be happy to open the Gallery for visitors.
