Located in central Perth, the art gallery is huge with many artefacts, paintings from all over the world. The cafe is just next to it serving coffee, cakes, muffins, etc. It is free entrance and the trip is memorable

I am not overly impressed with the art gallery as a whole (then again, we do need to take into consideration that we are in Perth and not London or NYC). However, the gallery consistently brings in great temporary exhibits/showcases. For example, the series from the MOMA or the most recent Richard Avedon photographic display. These are well worth the... More

I love art but am not an artist but the display didn't manage to get the WOW expression from my face. Just a few good ones but I have seen much better works. Just a fast walk in walk out.

This writer is always keen to visit art galleries, but I felt a little let down, I thought it a bit of a "misch-masch" (not that the writer is any great judge!) and got through it in about an hour's flat. It is located in the arts quarter - near the library and museum, so the location is perfect, not... More

I went on my own for the first time in a few years, and it was interesting to have a wonder round. Interesting artwork, and the location is great. I didn't get around to using the café, but maybe next time.
