We really enjoyed our visit here. The Australian art display is excellent & we were fortunate that the wonderful Paolo Sebastian (Special) Exhibition was also there. Could have spent the entire day there with a little break for lunch in their lovely café.

They have some rooms laid out chronologically, but other areas thematically which makes for interesting exhibits. The oldest oil painting created in Australia,famous works by Conder and Roberts were...More
