The galleries mix the old and the new with stunning exhibitions of contemporary and traditional Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander art adorning the walls of the turbine hall, featuring a magnificent natural acoustic.

Upstairs, the large Conference Room (with adjacent kitchen and toilet facilities) features bountiful sunlight, high ceilings and a capable technical fit out.

Tandanya also houses a theatre, suitable for performances, lectures and product launches, with a capacity of 147 raked seats, and a projection booth.

Tandanya caters for corporate hires, government departments and community organisations that value the cultural appropriateness of the atmosphere Tandanya generates. Our friendly Venue Coordinator is available to tailor each facility to the hirer’s requirements.

Please note that hire of the Gallery and the service of alcohol in that facility are dependent upon prior arrangement with the exhibiting artist(s).
