Art Gallery of New South Wales

The Art Gallery of New South Wales encapsulates both the evolution of art worldwide and Sydney’s commitment to solidifying its status as a cultural and artistic epicentre. Constructed between 1896 and 1909, the building, itself, is equally as significant as the five floors of art exhibits that it houses. The building’s early Greek architecture is magnificent in all respects and was intended to impress observers and function as a temple for art. Today, the Art Gallery of New South Wales is a prominent and popular fixture in the Harbour area, attracting local art enthusiasts as well as tourists from afar.

  • Devote a Wednesday evening to Art After Hours and immerse yourself in Sydney’s culture through live music and performances, films, and celebrity appearances.
  • Enjoy a kid-friendly introduction to art any Sunday at 2:30 p.m. with mime performances, music, theatre, workshops, and storytelling.
  • Visit Sydney's Art Gallery of New South Wales’ Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Art collection for a celebration of indigenous artistic endeavours that highlights the country’s rich past as well as its progression into the future.

The majestic Art Gallery of New South Wales stands within the pristine parklands overlooking Sydney’s renowned Harbour. Conveniently situated immediately adjacent to the Royal Botanic Gardens, the Gallery is only a short, 10 minute walk from the city centre. Public transportation offers myriad ways to travel to the vicinity, including bus and train options. Those travelling via bus can take #441 directly to the Gallery, while those travelling by train can choose between the St. James and Martin Place stations, both of which are in close proximity to the Gallery.
