The WOOLGOOLGA art gallery, located at Turon Parade, is about to get a facelift with work starting in March next year to modernize the gallery’s entrance courtyard.

The $ 85,000 grant comes from the State Government’s Stronger Country Communities Fund and will allow a major overhaul of the entrance area, including relocation of the reception desk, creation of an entrance to the main gallery space, fixing different floor levels and improving accessibility.
