We are open and accessible to the whole community, with the design promoting equality for the elderly, people with prams and people living with a disability. Layout, access and approach, entry, mobility, acoustics, furniture and equipment, floor coverings, communication, lighting have
all been developed with accessibility as precedence.

Inside the Gallery
The Gallery itself is wheelchair accessible and on street level, and a wheelchair accessible bathroom is located in the foyer to the rear of the Gallery.

There are two parking spaces for persons with disability in front of
the Gallery. (These are not dedicated to the Gallery, so are unable to be reserved.)

The building’s front entrance is via a gentle slope, accessed from either the left or right of the Library / Gallery steps. The front door is automatic for ease of access.

Backpacks, large bags, umbrellas and any other item as directed by Gallery staff must be checked into the cloakroom upon entry to the Gallery.

General photography of the Gallery is permitted, however, the use of tripods, selfie sticks, flash or lighting equipment is not permitted. We love to see the Gallery on social posts – please tag us @secca__bega #secca #sapphirecaostnsw

We love children in the Gallery but they must always be supervised by adults on the premises.

Food and drinks
Food and drinks aren’t permitted in the Gallery.

While we are animal lovers, they are not allowed in the Gallery. Guide Dogs and other registered assistance animals are of course permitted in the Gallery and to all events.
