A different outlook on aboriginal art and a stunning exhibition. Loved the peaceful venue. Would visit again. Free to enter and in the heart of everything in Sydney. If you're on a budget this is something on the must do list.

I went because I was told that they had a large and very fine Aboriginal Art collection. While then had some very good examples, I didn't find the collection as comprehensive as I would have liked and neither did I find detailed enough interpretive/explanatory information...More

Through the collection, we can learn the history of Sydney, NSW and Australia from the settlement to today. Just gorgeous and educational.

Central Business District
The Sydney Central Business District is abuzz with
energy. Power brokers run to and from high rise
buildings and after-work drink places, high-end
shoppers tour venues like the QVB, and fine diners
frequent the many celebrity chef restaurants. For a
dose of culture, walk to the NSW Art Gallery, or visit
the Sydney Museum. To escape the hustle and bustle,
reconnect with nature at the Sydney Botanical Gardens
