Excellent European and Australian collection across three floors, well curated and free! Restaurant and cafe on-site. Why didn’t we come here earlier!

I visit the Art Gallery of NSW once or maybe more often each year when in Sydney, most often for the Archibald or special exhibitions. In September this year I decided to just see the Indigenous art and began with an excellent volunteer guided tour...More

I'm not one for an art museum, but the Art Gallery of NWS was a delight. We stopped by during a walk through Sydney and weren't disappointed. They have some great Aboriginal Art that you don't see in other countries (unfortunately) along with all the...More

Privileged to be in Sydney to view the Archibald, Wynne and Sulman exhibitions at the Art Gallery. An absolute treat were the Young Archie display of art work from budding artists aged 5-18. A must see, loved it!

The only thing lacking was that I only had 4 hours to spare and needed at least double that to do justice to the Archibald, Wynne and Sulman prize exhibits. Irena K, our guide was knowledgeable and interesting. What a great way to spend time...More

Our family went here to see the Archibald exhibits. The gallery is set in a beautiful, picturesque park and is well maintained. The staff were friendly and helpful and the shop is always worth a visit. Recommended.

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
