This was my second visit to this excellent gallery. The exhibition was once again entertaining and thought provoking. The staff make a point of engaging in discussion about the exhibits if that is what you want. I highly recommend this gallery.

Most of the major art galleries in Australia are funded by government with some philanthropic donations and are well-known. Alongside publicly owned art are a number of private galleries. One of the best is White Rabbit Gallery, owned by Judith Neilson, which houses significant collections of Chinese contemporary art. The State of Play exhibition from 27 February 2015 to 30... More

I was gallery hopping and this was one of my favourites. Really great! Everything is so different, each exhibit is wilder than the next. Great!

The gallery has quite a large collections of Contemporary art collection. They changes exhibition twice a year. Be sure to take advantage of their free tour service 11:00am& 2:00pm from Wednesday to Sunday. After finish watching the exhibitions; we had some nice tea at the tea house at ground level. One of My favorite gallery in Sydney.

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.
