I enjoyed my visit to the gallery. The Australian collection especially has many famous works I had previously only seen in photos and prints, also a lot of less well known works by Australian and International artists.

AGNSW has a great static collection and fantastic touring exhibits. The cafe is a little so-so, but great views!

Visited the Gallery following a glorious walk through the Botanic Gardens. The Gallery itself is impressively spacious and we were able to enjoy the permanent collection without charge. On an early summer Sunday the place was nicely buzzing with visitors enjoying all the exhibits and it created a very good ambience. There are additional specialised visiting exhibitions that change on a regular basis. Added to all this is a superb cafe with, on the Sunday, live music. The staff at the Gallery reception were very welcoming and we could not believe the efficiency of the Cafe team.

A great place to escape downtown and the heat.

Great collection of pre-European and early European Australian art. Some of the paintings really bring out the experience of the sublime that the Australian landscape inspired in early European occupants. Nice 20th C Australian collection. Interesting exhibitions - often free. Nice little Asian art (Chinese, Korean, Japanese) collection.
