Tweed Regional Gallery & Margaret Olley Art Centre has been classified by the people as among the best of the best in the world.
The Gallery has maintained its ranking as the fourth best museum in TripAdvisor’s 2016 Travellers’ Choice ‘Top 10 Museums – Australia’ and has taken out a Travellers’ Choice Award, based on user reviews, for the second year in a row. This Northern Rivers Gallery was also ranked number nine in the ‘Top 25 Museums - South Pacific’ list in 2016.
Gallery Director, Susi Muddiman OAM said that it is incredible how many people come to this region and appreciate the art that the Northern Rivers has to offer.
“This is a tremendous achievement for the Gallery, for the second year running. It is very exciting. Reviews like this from our visitors, all unsolicited, indicate how many people are visiting our region and helping drive cultural tourism for the Tweed,” Susi Muddiman OAM said.
“I am thrilled for all involved in making the Gallery the vibrant destination it is – there’s really so much support from our volunteers, member of the Friends and Foundation every day, so this acclaim is a great boost for them too. It’s also terrific recognition of Council’s investment in one of the region’s most significant tourist attractions.”
TripAdvisor’s website states that the “annual awards reflect ‘the best of the best’ for service, quality, and customer satisfaction, from hotels and accommodations to destinations, attractions, and even brands and products.”
Travellers’ Choice award winners are selected annually based on feedback from millions of TripAdvisor members. Travellers’ Choice awards single out not just popular choices, but truly exceptional ones that keep travellers coming back.
“It is very exciting. Reviews like this from our visitors, all unsolicited, indicate how many people are visiting our region and helping drive cultural tourism for the Tweed,” Ms Muddiman said.
October is filled with exciting shows in the Gallery featuring a photomedia group show produced by Indigenous artists, as well as a well-loved exhibition by James Guppy, who you can read about in our latest issue.
