HOTA Gallery Opens Sat 8 May

It’s the art you’ve been waiting for – after years of waiting you can now book your visit to HOTA Gallery.

With tickets to our Launch Weekend on 8-9 May selling out in under two hours, we’re so happy to announce that you can now book to visit the HOTA Gallery.

Entry to HOTA Gallery is free, but to help us maintain capacity and keep everyone COVID Safe, we strongly recommend you pre-book in one of the available time slots.

Some programs and events will have an entry fee, and tickets will be available to be purchased online. As the City Collection belongs to the people of the Gold Coast, the HOTA Collects exhibitions will always remain free of charge.
