I took a free tour at that time. It was amazing with friendly guide for the tour inside the permanent gallery. You must come, It's beautiful, and many historical permanent gallery information/story that you can get from here. It's free to come inside to the gallery.

Wonderful Art Gallery, very special collections. Superb exhibitions and an absolute must to understand Adelaide and its early settlement through its artists. Has an excellent bookshop.
