The woman who does the guided tour is very knowledgeable and entertaining. I've joined her guided tours twice. This gallery has very original, often quirky Chinese art which is often like nothing you will see in China. Good tea and light snacks in teahouse at front.

Great to see something a little different. Great location. I loved the building. There is a small cafe and gallery shop for light meals and gifts.

Free entry and a wonderfully enthusiastic guided tour of the latest exhibition was a real eye opener. The art is confronting and unusual and taking the tour is a must. Spread over three floors with an elevator, you can spend hours viewing, taking a break for a light lunch in the chinese tea room, a browse in the shop and... More

I've been to three different exhibitions there. The expositions are varying, sometimes it is exceptional, sometimes it is quite ordinary. But it is always set up beautifully, there is always something interesting to discover and it is free after all. The exhibitions are changing regularly and so it never gets boring, this is the place I visit at least once... More

If contemporary art sometimes seems a little hard to grasp, if you wonder what all that esoteric mumbo jumbo really means and sometimes you just don't get it, White Rabbit gallery in the inner Sydney suburb of Chippendale is the place for you. Sure it's contemporary art at its cutting edge best, but this place is so well thought out... More

Free entry to this gallery is a steal with plenty to see and do. Gift shop in itself is fun and worthwhile.

I absolutely love this Gallery…always challenging, always stimulating, always fantastic. The best gallery with great chinese cafe serving dumplings and chinese teas. Helpful guides on each floor and although I didn't buy anything loved browsing through the gift shop items - 1950's Chinese kitsch. The surrounding area has the new Central Park, with a couple of interesting sculptures and new... More

This is by far the best gallery visiting experience you would have. Thought provoking and a good insight into the Chinese culture and history. The art keeps changing every 6 months and even within that period, there is always a new perspective to the things. There is a very nice library at the third floor where you can sit and... More
