Very diverse art to admire and experience. I enjoyed the video theaters the most- very thoughtful one about our effect on the environment, then another about laughter. The aboriginal art is very interesting and unique to Australia. The rooftop restaurant is a great view of...More

I usually love contemporary art galleries, but just didn't really connect with Sydney MCA. I suspect it was less to do with the gallery and more because I first had to fight through the throngs of people and vehicles on the quayside just to get...More

I don't consider myself an "artsy" person so surprisingly, I enjoyed my visit to the MCA in April with friends. I particularly liked the driftwood collection of Fiona Hall - "Manuhiri" (Travellers) - which she gathered over time on a beach in New Zealand. The...More

MCA Sydney ( Museum of Contemporary art) We loved the Pipilotti Rist exhibition. A wonderful artist and a beautifully assembled and presented selection of works. Clearly a trailblazer in the fields of video art. It's the kind of show that just keeps on giving. A...More

A must see in Sydney The Internationally acclaimed Pipilotti Rist exhibition ‘Sip my Ocean’ at the MCA. The exciting curatorial approach creates a total immersion in her works. Nothing at this years Venice Biennale or Documenta has left a more lasting impression on me. One...More

We have been here twice recently, once for an art class with 5 yr old child, and the second time to take him to children’s exhibition opening. Both times were great. He particularly enjoyed Pipilotti Rist and the exhibition for children.

When the MCA opened on its current site in 1991 I was thrilled to become a member as I love exploring contemporary art... but I have always struggled to like the place: its buildings and exhibitions. Approaching the MCA this trip I realised it had...More

Really didn't like this place... felt pretentious... staff were unfriendly... art work was questionable (can't think of much that I actually liked) - and yes I do like contemporary art, I own several pieces already. We ended up going quickly around and couldn't wait to...More

Sydney's Museum of Contemporary Art is a real gem. The building itself is rather nice too. The Museum is literally a few seconds away from Circular Quay railway station, on the ferry wharf where Sydney's ferries come and go continuously and where you can often...More

Free, yes free...amazing. Enjoy some cutting edge art Circular Quay. Go up to the roof restaurant/coffee bar for the best views of the Harbor Bridge and The Opera House. The museum displays 2-D, 3-D and film/digital art forms. 2-3 hours for all of the above....More

The Rocks
The first residents of the Rocks were convicts and
sailors from the old nation. As the oldest
neighbourhood in the city, the area's cobblestone
streets host more than 100 heritage sites and
buildings, including the oldest house in Sydney,
Camden Cottage, which was built in 1816. Taste a “midi
“ or a “schooner” of beer and dine “al fresco” on the
waterfront at some of the oldest pubs in Sydney. The
