  • Has a nice collection of Sydney Nolan art, which is better displayed here then at the one at National Gallery. Using the term Museum is overselling it. It has a very small permanent art collection, so how good your experience is will depend on the quality of the visiting exhibition.
  • Get a real break from work at lunch , cool calm and collections. Bikes have gone interesting bird sculptures new in
  • They got some really nice glass work inside that can't be found in other galleries.
  • It is a nice building. A good spot to hang out and it has some nice art pieces. All of that is free of charge.
  • Lovely gallery to check out their changing exhibitions.

Where to stay in Canberra

To stay comfortably near most main attractions in Canberra, choose a hotel in the city's central district. If you're a bit more budget-minded, look for a guesthouse in a neighborhood farther away from the city center. Residential areas offer more parking and quieter rooms at a fraction of the price charged by big-name centrally located hotels. Rental apartments spread across Canberra serve as another cozy option and offer lodgings ranging from simply furnished to luxurious five-star properties.
