One of the best places to visit in the city. Ground floor focuses on contemporary art and the latest in the local arena. Top floors offer art pieces tested by time. A nice flow overall. There's also space for private/corporate events. Attentive team on the ground. Has a very good shop and cafe withing the master building. Very close to other attractions.
Great place to see some awesome art from across Australia and some from much further afield. Great place to bring kids and get them away from screens for a time...although there are some exhibitions that contain screens. Definitely worth visiting for some relaxation.
