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.
