I know it's trendy to mix styles/periods/genres in art galleries, but to do it properly like at the Hobart MONA, you need talent. At this gallery you have a good example of how NOT to do it. It's a confusing mish-mash of everything, so you can't appreciate anything. Hugely disappointing!

Our daughter is now living in Adelaide so two Londoners who love gallery visiting were delighted by our welcome and the services offered . The main gallery is free as in UK ( how civilised ) and we had a free guided tour by one of the volunteers. It was extremely interesting and helped us tune in to Australian art... More

Absolutely loved this gallery. Having worked in the museums and gallery sector in the UK for the last couple of decades, it was an absolute delight to visit here and find a refreshing mix of traditional and contemporary art. The temporary exhibitions were stunning - so much so I came back into the city the next day to visit them... More

A really well laid out art gallery with some interesting pictures. As there was not much European art, I was unfamiliar with the majority of the artists, and therefore did not recognise their importance although I did appreciate the range of works.

Pleasant building housing wide range of paintings and sculpture. Liked all of the great Australian artists/art on display. References to development of art in Australia and changing taste also interesting. Cafe efficient and tasty offerings in airy courtyard. Pleasant couple of hours.

My wife suggested we come in to see Cate Blanchett in this movie RED it was sensational and worth every minute of the drive here. I believe that the installation is on until the end of April - check with the art gallery - its really worth seeing and the bonus its free, we found the film runs every 15... More

We had checked out of our hotel & planned to spend the day here particularly as the weather was hot & it was our last day in Adelaide! We did an 11am tour of 'Versus Rodin' ( very good) & then had lunch as part of a Rodin package for $60 which was very good value & consisting of delicious... More

I had a quick stop in Adelaide and visited the gallery. I tacked on to a guided tour which highlighted the gallery but also allowed some time for you to explore. What a great place to spend a couple of hours.
