  • We went specifically to see the Archibald Finalists. Easy walk through the underground tunnel at the end of Hyde park. Magnificent building and clear directions to the paintings. Plenty of people...

  • One of the most fantastic spaces for a free day out in Sydney. Escape the heat, rain or wind and you won’t need to spend a cent! So many different galleries and from so many corners of this earth. This is maybe my favourite place in Sydney. Don’t forget to feed yourself at the tasty cafe with indoor or outdoor seating. Recommend!
  • The Art Gallery of NSW is absolutely lovely! It has art from different parts of the world, including European, Asian and aboriginal works. Next to that, it’s very well organized and the information next to the paintings are useful. The entry is free, however you need to pay if you wish to visit an additional exposition, which constantly changes.
