Great collection of Aussie and South Aussie paintings in a lovely well appointed gallery. The only of only a few worthwhile places to visit in Adelaide.

I have visited this Gallery on many occasions and I never get bored. It is not a large gallery by world standards, but it has particular strengths in Aboriginal art and Australian Colonial art. Entry is free, other than to special exhibitions. The aboriginal artworks in the new wing are exceptionally interesting examples and deserve some time for careful study. A good small bookshop also has much of interest. Well worth a visit if you are visiting Adelaide, or if you live in Adelaide but have never been to the Art Gallery previously.

We saw a lot of great local work at the Heartland exhibition last summer. Well curated! However, we didn't spend much time on the rest of the gallery.

As with all the state art galleries, this is a lovely building. The range of Australian landscapes in particular is excellent. It's only a few minutes from the CBD too.

Loved visiting here on a 40 degree day. Apart from the sanctuary of the air conditioning, this is a beautiful old building to explore with some impressive art.
