- Dating from 1871, and located at its present site overlooking Woolloomooloo Bay since 1885, this is one of Australia's premier art institutions. The buzz when one enters the building is truly palpable—visitors come, enjoy and do not want to leave. The permanent collection includes Australian, European, Asian and contemporary art. The Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander works on display in the Yiribana Gallery are totally unsurpassed. There is also an exciting and diverse temporary exhibition program. Admission: Free; charges apply for some temporary exhibitions.
