Information for families

Bags and Cloak Rooms

Cloak rooms are at the entries to both QAG and GOMA. Please check bags bigger than 40cm x 15cm x 35cm, umbrellas and items our staff feel may not be safe for other visitors or works of art inside the Gallery.

You can keep bags containing care needs for yourself or anyone in your care, including bags containing items for a medical condition or first aid supplies, baby carriers being used to carry a child, or baby bags securely and unobtrusively attached to a pram or carried by the carer’s side.


Breastfeeding and infant bottle-feeding are welcome anywhere in the Gallery, or you can use the parents’ rooms at either QAG or GOMA. The parents’ rooms can be used to mix infant formula. Food and drink for older children and adults are not allowed in the Gallery, and we ask you to please keep water bottles in a bag.

Parents Room

There are two parents’ rooms at QAG, one near the Stanley Place entrance and one near the Pelican Lounge, both on the Watermall level. There is a parents’ room at GOMA, in the Cinema Foyer. Please ask our staff for directions.

Prams and Accessibility

Prams are welcome, and all areas of QAG and GOMA are accessible by lift or ramp. Pram parking is available near the entrance to all CAC spaces.
