The Art Gallery of NSW has a wonderful permanent collection but is especially great to visit when they have special exhibitions. Easy to access, parking is good if you are driving and the cafe and bookshop are worth a visit.

Monday morning visit wasn’t at all busy, staff were helpful and pleasant, the disappointment was in the art itself. For my money, way too many self portraits and very little that interested or impressed me. I enjoyed the Yound Archies more, perhaps think about giving...More

I especially liked the galleries with Australian artists (the European and American art wasn't all that exciting). I learned a lot about indigenous artists which I found interesting.

Central Business District
The Sydney Central Business District is abuzz with
energy. Power brokers run to and from high rise
buildings and after-work drink places, high-end
shoppers tour venues like the QVB, and fine diners
frequent the many celebrity chef restaurants. For a
dose of culture, walk to the NSW Art Gallery, or visit
the Sydney Museum. To escape the hustle and bustle,
reconnect with nature at the Sydney Botanical Gardens
