About Us

Galleries in the Gardens, Inc. is a non-profit community collective of artists from Tea Gardens, Hawks Nest and the Myall River region.

Renowned as an artists' enclave and for its abundance of natural beauty, this area is located in coastal New South Wales, Australia.

The picturesque riverfront of Tea Gardens has inspired artists to reach for their brushes, their cameras and their clay since its foundation in the 1800’s.

And just over the Myall River and famous Singing Bridge, Hawks Nest adds to creative juices with its spectacular ocean vistas and bay views from the northern shores of Port Stephens.

A meander up 'the Myall’ reveals a stunning lake system larger than Sydney Harbour and brimming with beauty for artists and visitors alike.

Then there's the myriad of local fauna including koalas, kangaroos, dolphins, giant goannas - and birdlife species in numbers to rival Kakadu!

Galleries in the Gardens, Inc., fondly known as ‘GIG’, presents its members works, fosters artistic growth and development, and is a source of creative activity.

GIG artists’ works can be seen and bought at The Gallery (our home) and in a number of local businesses.

Visitors can also spot them along the Myall River Art Walk.

Funds raised from the sale of GIG artworks go toward the further promotion of art.
