Just visited Karlangu with my 3 to 4 year old preschool class and everyone there was lovely. The artwork was so beautiful and the stories the children learned from the paintings will surely stick with them. Especially the Three Brothers story. Thank you so much!

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
