A great collection of artwork from Australia and internationally. I especially enjoyed the Aboriginal art collection. Easy access as located in the heart of the city sitting beside the museum and the library. And its free!

The gallery is great but walking in at the moment, one of the first things you see if you enter on the European art wing, is a sculpture of two dead, headless horses (clothed in real horse skin, legs etc) hanging from the ceiling. It's...More

I attended one of the free tours and it was so personal and informative. The way exhipits are preseted is marvellous. I enjoyed the presentation almost as much as the exhibits themselves. Do go. A cool and sophisticated place!

Good display of indigenous art here with explanations. Also has traditional European art. Alot to absorb. Overall a pretty 'normal' art gallery but worth a couple of hours.

It has great paintings and sculptures from Australian painters included amazing Aboriginal artists. You can better understand the history and nature of this amazing country through the art. They have a lot of activities to do with your family. It's located in North Terrace.

My art gallery visit was unplanned, but really enjoyable, due to friendly staff help and advice provided. I recommend to do a free tour at 11am or 2pm if time permits
