One of the best galleries I have been to in Australia. Comprehensive collection of Aussie art allows you to really see the themes and transitions over the centuries. Several pieces of artwork that I really liked. Highly recommend.

the indigenous collection is a must see and a first-class slice of contemporary Australian art. Brilliant gallery in which to view the zeitgeist of contemprary art.

This gallery is part of the NGV but separately located in the very accessible Federation Square. We enjoyed the Australian art on display; there appeared to be more than one level but we didn't have the time to see anymore than just one floor. Worth...More

Kids and adults alike enjoyed our excursion to the gallery, and the variety of artwork on display was glorious. This was our first visit to Australia, so we loved the exposure to native artwork as well.

Full of discovery and delight, Melbourne’s laneways
tease the imagination long after you’ve put your weary
feet up to rest. They weave through the heart of the
city: cafes, bars, restaurants and boutiques,
throbbing with conversation and espresso coffee. You
never quite know what you’ll find around the next
corner: cobblestone alleys, old beer barrel hoists and
even vats of simmering organic soup. There is the air
