Too often international galleries all have the same collection of modern masters. The Art Gallery of New South Wales had an impressive collection of art unique to Australia and/or this gallery. There was naturally an impressive collection of Aboriginal art, but also a truly remarkable...More

I am not an art gallery kind of guy and this was part of our tour, so I went. Co workers constantly talk about the Metropolitan Museum of Modern Art here in NYC and I fall asleep. Had to go there in High School as...More

I happened on the gallery and was in time for one of the 'free' tours. I enjoyed it so much I stayed for another tour and came back the next day. It is very central so easy to walk to, or access from public transport.

I had a spare couple of hours so went here. Not a huge art fan but this was a great gallery. Very interesting. Some great pieces - particulary the aboriginal art work and statues.

This is a lovely building situated out on Mrs Macquarie's Chair with views of the harbour and greens of the Domain. The gallery itself is a lovely old sandstone building steeped in architectural heritage. Inside is a static art collection that is always worth wandering...More

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
