More Info

Exciting hands-on activities for children that explore the important relationship the Kaiadilt people of the Gulf Carpentaria have with the sea is visiting Rockhampton Art Gallery as part of a major Queensland Art Gallery | Gallery of Modern Art (QAGOMA) regional tour to more than 80 regional venues.

In The Gabori Sisters: Gathering by the Sea, young visitors can experience the free, interactive project that QAGOMA’s Children’s Art Centre developed in collaboration with Elsie, Dorothy and Amanda Gabori. Children are taken on a journey of discovery to the artists' homeland of Bentinck Island in Queensland's Gulf of Carpentaria.

The Kids on Tour program invites children to discover the creatures that inhabit the waters around Bentinck Island through making, drawing and multimedia activities.

Kids on Tour is offered as a free program to regional Queensland communities through the Gallery’s Regional Services department.

Alongside QAGOMA’s free activities, Rockhampton Art Gallery have on display two of Mrs Sally Gabori’s Dibirdibi country paintings that depict fish traps on Bentinck Island as well as other artworks depicting the sea by contemporary Australian and Indigenous artists.
