I visited again last week and it lived up to my (high) expectations. Delicious, reasonably priced lunch; original and amusing items in the gift shop and of course most importantly the exhibition itself. Thankyou to the owner who enables us to learn about and enjoy contemporary Chinese art.

Excellent gallery with challenging displays and very accessible. Not for everyone. Probably should check if child-suitable displays are on at the time of visiting, but for many of us this is a great space with excellent mind-bending installations.

I work near White Rabbit so am lucky to be able to lunch here quite often. Dumplings are just right, served with chilli oil, with soy and vinegar on the table. Chicken or egg dumplings. Makes decisions easy. One of the real treats are the freshly baked scones, which you can also buy to take home or back to the... More

The ever changing and eccentric exhibitions make the White Rabbit Gallery one place I keep going back to regularly. And I love sitting down afterwards to try the different teas in their little tea room.

If you have a picky eater, you may want to choose another place. Great atmosphere. Great food. Loved the live music on weekend nights. Service was top notch. Value is average.

This gallery has a fabulous collection of contemporary Chinese art. I've been many times and have never been disappointed, and everyone I've taken has loved their visit too. You don't need to know anything about China, their art or contemporary art, just go along with an open mind and you will see beautiful, magical, surprising or thought-provoking art. On the... More

On our last day in Sydney we went to the WHITE RABBIT Gallery. We where lucky that we just arrived as a guided Tour commenced. But even without that it would have been absolutely amazing! Forget everything you think about a Gallery! If there is anything remotely like it it would be the Museum of Old and New Art in... More

The White Rabbit gallery was a brilliant experience. I love interesting contemporary art myself, so I was in my prime! Definitely try and catch one of the guided tours (though they only get a certain amount of time, so my tour ended before we had gotten through the entire gallery). They are handy to have as you get told about... More

I was there by accident, went to central park for some market and walk around to find this gallery. As it's free, i just walk in :). In May 2015, they have the "Play" exhibition, 35 chinese artist, with their own interpretation of the world - some are a bit "different", but i think it's an art, some are easily... More

It's free, there's 3 levels and you get a taste of modern Chinese art - exhibits change every 6 months. There can be some very good stuff but also a lot of pretentious, simplistic chaff. Conveniently located behind the Central Park development.
