National Gallery of Australia
The National Gallery of Australia has a stunning permanent collection of Australian and international art, and hosts traveling exhibitions.
The permanent collection focuses on four areas: Australian art from colonial to contemporary, Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander art, Asian and Indian art, and art from across the globe.
Sidney Nolan’s Ned Kelly series of paintings are prominently displayed near the entrance to the gallery, and Australian Impressionists such as Tom Roberts and Arthur Streeton are also well represented.
Step outside to the sculpture garden to admire works by a range of artists, including Rodin’s Burghers of Calais.
This trip was arranged from the U K, the questions emailed to John Williams were answered by return. His tour round Canberra was first class, a very memorable experiance.
The pick up and drop off at different locations was on time and driver was very friendly and knowledgeable too. Overall, had a very good time. Thank you.
Excellent - so much easier than driving - the tour was well run - on time and the host driver was great. I managed to see more attractions in my one day available than I would have been able to see over a weekend if I had to drive myself.
The National Gallery of Australia is in Canberra’s museum precinct, Parkes Place, overlooking Lake Burley Griffin.
