Art Gallery of New South Wales Reviews
ハイドパークからのんびり歩いて10分ほど、Woolloomooloo Wharfの近くにある美術館です。ほとんどが無料で見学できるということもあり、たくさんの観光客で賑わっていました。芸術などかなり疎いので良さはいまいちわかりませんが、ちょっとした時間つぶしにはなりました。 more »It is a 10-minute walk from Hyde Park and is located near Woolloomooloo Wharf.

If you love art and seeing what humans can create out of paint, sculpture and random bits and bobs you'll love this place. If you want to watch an action movie you'll be bored to tears here.

It's free unless they have paid exhibitions on, which are usually great because you'll see things that you'd have to travel overseas to see, or online.
A nice place to relax and view artworks from Australia and around the world. Don't miss rare and unique one off exhibition. Check for listings. A beautiful place to walk around and enjoy the day whether it be on your own, with friends and family or loved ones. There is also a really nice place to eat... ENJOY!
