Althought there are not too many aboriginal paintings, they are very nice and worth going there. Moreover, it is FREE!

The collection on display is varied but the gallery is not large. A visit of an hour will be sufficient for most people to explore the gallery. Staff were welcoming and very helpful. Admission is free.More
