Despite the weekend crowds the Art Gallery of NSW is always worth a visit. We were here about a year ago and there has been a good rotation of art with only a couple of major installations remaining as they were from our last visit. And its free! Take the kids, take visitors to Sydney, take a break from the... More

Worth ducking in for an hour for an overview of Australian art. Check on line in advance to see about docent ours. The Royal Botanical Gardens are adjacent and well worth a visit.

The Gallery is a marvel. So much to see. So beautifully displayed. A visit to the Gallery is very special. As well I had sat through the lecture series each Thursday for 2 years. It's a magical insight into art through the ages and very, very informative.

Father's Day at the Archibald exhibition - what a great way to spend a Sunday! Great portraits by local artists - Anh Do's portrait of his father and Adam Goodes stood out to me as really great pieces of work. The kids were kept entertained with a really clever guide that encouraged them to interact with the work (not literally,... More

This was my second visit to the Art Gallery of NSW during another short visit to Sydney. The gallery was busy this time with the infamous Archibald Prize exhibit. Lucky enough I was there early enough in the mid-morning to get in before the line ups got too long. I purchased a double ticket for the Archibald Prize Exhibit and... More

You can easily loose a full day in this art gallery. I love it here. The only negative for me is the parking. The ticketing rangers are always out and find it very lucrative. With the park across the road, you could take a picnic lunch and really enjoy. (just solve the transport issue first).

We loved visiting the Art Gallery of Sydney, because it was our first contact with the Australian artists.
