I was not sure what to expect of this place. It had a kvery strong Aborigional art content ( not my preffered style). But there is also a good collection of broze casts and other fine art. Worth an browse.

We really enjoyed our visit here. The Australian art display is excellent & we were fortunate that the wonderful Paolo Sebastian (Special) Exhibition was also there. Could have spent the entire day there with a little break for lunch in their lovely café.
