I really enjoy this gallery. I love the quality of the great contemporary artworks. Large selection of important aboriginal works too. I love the Pollock and Warhol plus many many more.

SO GOOD! One of my favourite galleries ever. I was captivated by at least one thing in every area and I didn’t get bored which is very uncommon for me. The only negative is that the flow between galleries wasn’t that great and I had to back track a few times.
