Art Gallery of New South Wales

Art Gallery Rd, Sydney 2000

Ph: 1800679278 / 0292251744

From its magnificent site on Sydney Harbour, on Gadigal land, the Art Gallery of New South Wales is one of Australia’s flagship art museums and the state’s leading visual arts institution. The Art Gallery is one of the finest tourism destinations in Australia and an absolute must-see for an art and cultural experience in Sydney.

Each year, almost two million visitors enjoy the Art Gallery and the large collection of art. Located within beautiful parklands overlooking Sydney Harbour and only a 15-minute walk from the city centre. Admission is free, as are most of the exhibitions and events.

In 2021 the Art Gallery celebrated its 150th anniversary, and in 2022 it completed a significant expansion through the Sydney Modern Project, a transformation of the art museum across two buildings connected by a public art garden. In 2024, the two buildings were given Aboriginal language names: Naala Badu (seeing waters) for the north building and Naala Nura (seeing country) for the south building.

Dine at Crafted by Matt Moran or MOD. Dining by Clayton Wells. Enjoy refreshments from the Gallery Café, or Kiosk featuring a takeaway menu with each item, curated by Indigenous Elder Aunty Beryl Van-Oploo, featuring native Australian ingredients.
