I went here to see the Dutch Masters exhibit and was not disappointed. Visitors were left to wander and get close to these great masters but obviously a don't touch rule in enforced. The Art Gallery as a whole never disappoints

The collection is enviable and there is something for everyone. The gallery frequently holds world class exhibitions. The building itself is an architectural masterpiece, a fab way to while away a few hours/days. Not to be missed.

I love coming to the Art Gallery- I can escape the heat or the cold ( depending on the season) whilst looking at the most amazing art. A large part of the gallery is free entry with selected exhibitions paid entry. Beautiful building in itself...More

Splendid combination of old-world arts collection in a classical building with considerable Aboriginal and Asian art non display in a modern building annex.

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
