It is available for takeaway as well. Cake selection is small but well chosen, with the carrot & walnut cake always fresh and moist. The is an extensive menu for... More

Among the 4 cities I visited in Australia in March 2015, (Sydney, Brisbane, Melbourne and Adelaide) I ranked Adelaide high in the list. Main reason - most tourist attractions are located next to each other, along one side of North Terrace Street or North ICE as the locals call it. The Art Gallery of South Australia is located next to... More

It is on North Terrace which is an interesting street if you walk it slowly and read the footpath plaques. It is Also next to the museum and just down... More

An enjoyable and interesting way to spend a couple of hours. Beautiful old building in a lovely part of Adelaide. Grab lunch from the noodle place across the road- so good.

Adelaide is justified in being proud of its Art Gallery as it is one of the best that we have visited. The Art Gallery was one of the few places open on Good Friday. It opened at 10am and we were personally greeted and given a brief outline of the gallery by one of the reception staff. I suggest that... More

We love the Art Gallery of South Australia and on a recent visit to Adelaide last December were keen to visit the Fashion Icons exhibition. We were fortunate enough to go on a guided tour which is highly recommended. Our guide was a young man (?James) with a wealth of information. He provided us with an interesting and entertaining tour... More

The gallery is in a lovely old building on North Terrace in Adelaide. Entry is free. The gallery isn't large but has a good mix of old and contemporary art including some well known Australian artists. There are also some lovely pieces of furniture and unusual collections such as the lace work we saw. The exhibition area is large and... More

Great art gallery with a wide range of things to look at. No matter what you like it is probably covered as there were things from various cultures, influences and time periods.
