Gosford Regional Gallery has two carparks with free parking for 65 vehicles and five accessible parking spaces. The main carpark is accessed via Adelaide Street. Coach and minibus parking is available at our carpark to the rear of the building, with entry via George Street, East Gosford. There is also on-street parking in the streets surrounding the gallery.
There are five accessible parking spaces, three in the main (north) carpark and two in the back (south) carpark. Fairly level access from our main carpark leads past the studio annex and up a slight slope to the main gallery. Access from the back carpark involves a steeper slope. If it is necessary for passengers with accessibility issues to be dropped off at the door to the gallery, please come to the main carpark only and call (02) 4304 7550 to request that the bollards be unlocked. It will be necessary to return the vehicle to the carpark immediately. The main building, main gallery and gardens are all easily accessible via electric sliding doors.
The gallery foyer, exhibition spaces and café are all wheelchair accessible. The exhibition spaces are kept cool to protect the artworks, so visitors sensitive to low temperatures are encouraged to wear warm clothing. There is a right hand transfer accessibility toilet in the main gallery building and a left hand transfer accessibility toilet in the adjacent studio annex. Occasionally, the annex might be locked and access would then need to be requested at the main gallery reception. The gallery owns one basic wheelchair which can be borrowed if it is available.
Most of the Edogawa Commemorative Garden paths are wheelchair accessible, except in the case of very wet weather when paths may be muddy or even become submerged. As the paths are surfaced in traditional finishes, some are bumpy and uneven. The path between the Wisteria Walk and the Teahouse is particularly rough and only accessible to robust electronic wheelchairs.
Registered assistance dogs in harness or displaying identification as a service animals are welcome.
Feeding the koi
Please do not bring bread or other foodstuffs to feed the fish or ducks, as this is not healthy for them. Fish food is available in our gift shop at $2.00 a bag, payable by card or with the exact amount (change is not available). Never allow ducks or other wild animals to eat directly from your hands.
Although food and drinks are not permitted in the Edogawa Commemorative Garden, a number of picnic tables are located in the shaded grounds at the entrance to the gallery. These tables are unfortunately not wheelchair accessible, but an accessible picnic table is available in the playground a couple of minutes away. The gallery’s cafe also provides a range of refreshments and dining options.
Dogs and other Pets
Pets, except for registered assistance animals, are not permitted in the gallery buildings or gardens.
