If you're looking for some free activities in Sydney, this is a good place to start. Very simply put: if you love paintings, you'll love it here. If you don't like art and paintings, don't come here. They also have a lovely café for having...More

It has been some years since my last visit but there is always something to find. I am not at all into modern art so gave those exhibits a big miss but I really enjoyed all of the colonial exhibits - a real bit of...More

Took the girlfriend here for her birthday as it seemed like a great place on a rainy day and it's free! Some great European exibitions and Asian exibitions at the moment. Most of the crowds seemed to be 50+ so maybe not a great place...More

Not my first visit but somewhere that I love coming back to time and time again. There's something peaceful and intriguing about looking at the artworks. A must for visitors to Sydney or Sydneysiders themselves!

We thoroughly enjoyed the afternoon viewing the artwork of the talented John Olsen. He is a wonderful talented ambassador for Aussie art and a true gentleman. Well worth the visit.

This is a must see. Given that it is free, you would insult your city hosts if you did not spend an afternoon here. Take your choice of periods and walk about yourself or wait for the hourly guided tours to the various exhibits. If...More

Stopped in to see the exhibitions on offer. Very interesting art and exhibits, but some of the modern art was pure rubbish. The huge chromed sculpture of a seated Captain Cook was a highlight.

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
