Heritage Theatre

Gympie

Located in the heart of Gympie, and just a short stroll to the cafes, this fully air-conditioned, multi-purpose entertainment facility offers disabled access, a beautiful portico entrance to protect you from the elements and incorporates several function areas. The Heritage Theatre has tiered seating which makes it ideal for most theatre productions/conferences as perfect vision is ensured. The Prospectors Hall is a large open auditorium perfect for dances, weddings, exhibitions and much more. The Fossickers Room is smaller than the Prospectors Hall and is therefore more suited to intimate functions such as conferences, weddings and other social gatherings.

 

Australian Institute of Country Music (AICM)

Gympie

The cornerstone of the AICM is the creation of an integrated campus for the study, performance, manufacturing and commercialization of Australian Country Music. The AICM is a not-for-profit incorporated association formed in 2001 to value add to the Gympie Country Music Muster profile for the Gympie region. One of the key aims of the AICM is to extend the duration and the scope of country music events and activities and assist in building a stronger country music industry in Gympie and Australia.
