  • The Art Gallery sometimes opens up at night for a concert. I recently attended a concert and was delighted with the atmosphere. It is a calm environment and I love the big sculpture in the middle of the floor.
  • I listened with interest to the A.B.C. radio interview regarding your robot tour guide. A charming gimmick and children will love it, but why oh why must she have an American accent?

  • Interesting and beautiful. A mind bending collection of old and new art. This is a fantastic place to stroll through on a date or take the family for something different.
  • Great place to see some of the culture from early and modern Australia
  • Great exhibitions here. Be sure to check out the year 12 perspectives
