    I visited a number of art centres in Sydney. This one is perfect. I bought a didgeridoo and was well advised. No pressure and sound advice.

    Attended Ray and Maria’s galleries for some years. There is the one in Sofitel and No. One Martin Place (in the old GPO building). No pressure to purchase. Fantastic collection of art work; some of Australia’s greatest artists and Indigenous artists. Well worth a visit just to see what is going on and take a breather from CBD and its intensity; or to chat about the latest trends. Wentworth Gallery: Sydney institution.

    And if you’re visiting Australia, you can pick up a piece of Indigenous art far cheaper than you’d imagine. It’lll fit in your suitcase and you will have a unique reminder of your happy days in Australia.

    I can only agree with the other reviews on this site. What a surprise to see such a variety of Australian painting and sculpture beautifully displayed in an historic sandstone building right in the heart of the CBD. Chris wasn't there the day we visited but Linda was so warm and welcoming, with none of the stand-offish or superior manner so often seen in private gallery staff. She knew we weren't buying but couldn't have been kinder, even opening up some of the atrium galleries for us to view. As some of the other reviews have said, it is well worth going in for a look, after all it is free, and you'll have the bonus of a pleasant conversation with knowledgeable staff and get to check out a great building into the bargain.

    For the serious collector, there are thousands of paintings in varying styles and a huge range of sculpture to tempt you.
