I will be totally honest and say that I am not one to normally spend hours in a gallery. But when I finally went, many years ago, I was pleasantly surprised. The Art Gallery of South Australia is not as big as some which allows...More

The art gallery of SA has elegant galleries and excellent exhibitions - some permanent & some temporary. There are often workshops where you can try your talents too. We really like the indoor outdoor cafe for smart , casual dining or just a coffee.

This has to be high on the 'must see in Adelaide' list. The building alone is just so beautiful. The gallery is across a number of rooms, so if one doesn't capture your interests, the next one will.

This art gallery has a great variety of different works. I found quite a few pieces that really gave me food for thought. Well set out with a nice cafe at the back. Staff were very knowledgable and friendly.

We were pleasantly surprised to find this world class gallery in a smaller Australian Capital City. The quality of the work and the way it is displayed could serve as a benchmark for many galleries not just around Australia, but the world. Adding to this,...More
