- This library is housed in an elegant sandstone building overlooking the Botanic Gardens. Its research collections are unsurpassed throughout the Southern hemisphere. Displays of manuscript material can be seen in several locations, while the first floor of the Mitchell Wing has a temporary exhibition program devoted to aspects of Australian art and history. The adjoining Picture Gallery offers the only opportunity in Sydney to view a collection of early colonial art and is well worth a visit. The shop also carries a wide range of books on Australiana.
