  • We went specifically to see the Archibald Finalists. Easy walk through the underground tunnel at the end of Hyde park. Magnificent building and clear directions to the paintings. Plenty of people...

  • One of the most fantastic spaces for a free day out in Sydney. Escape the heat, rain or wind and you won’t need to spend a cent! So many different galleries and from so many corners of this earth. This is maybe my favourite place in Sydney. Don’t forget to feed yourself at the tasty cafe with indoor or outdoor seating. Recommend!
  • Went to see the Matisse exhibition. Loved it! Well set out. Beautiful artworks. The staff are very helpful, polite and excited about the gallery. I was told of upcoming events that may be of interest. You have to prove your vaccination status and mask up, but these things are not an inconvenience in order to see this exhibition. Book ahead but if you still have and want to use your NSW Discover voucher you must redeem these in person.
