The gallery is well worth a visit but if you are in Sydney from July to October, you can see the entry portraits for the Archibald Prize and the winners. Doubly well worth it! Also catch Wynne (landscape) and Sulman ( subject, genre or mural)...More

There's always a new exhibition to see at the Art Gallery of NSW. If you're in Sydney during the annual Archibald Prize exhibition don't miss it. The accompanying Wynnum and Sulmam prize finalists are also part of the entry fee for the Archibald. Overseas visitors...More

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
