Whilst not the biggest gallery in Australia we spent a couple of hours here enjoying the various items split by a refuelling break at the welcoming gallery cafe. We particularly enjoyed the four "Our Collection" sections on the ground floor. A number of the artists in the earlier period were known to us but the highlights were the final two sections which include many vibrant items from Australian national artists. It was good also to feel the buzz of this well used gallery in it's attractive setting.

I happened to be in Perth for a particularly interesting exhibition at this gallery, but its permanent collection is well worth seeing on its own. Especially for a visitor from Europe who might not have seen much Australian art elsewhere. Nice design and spacious feeling. Good shop and cafe.

Worth a visit. Since I only had an hour between trains (the gallery is five minutes from the station) I've only visited the downstairs area but this is very well laid out with a good mixture of modern pieces. I will definitely visit this again.

This is a modern building with a wonderful collection. It has a very open and airy feeling. I liked the blend of art, artifacats and sculptures in the same area.. The indigenous art was quite fascinating but there is a lot of western art also. Great blend and best of all it was free. Love when I can just make a donation to get entry into viewing the beauty of history.
