Not only does this Art Gallery reside on one of the best locations in Sydney, but it also has an epic contemporary art collection. The staff were friendly and helpful, and showed me how to best get the most of the collection. The collection is...More

I can only judge the MCA by the two key exhibitions I have been to. The first of these, Anish Kapoor, was now a few years ago but introduced me to the joy that can sometimes be had from contemporary art. I hadn’t even intended...More

Although I am not a feminist, in the last seven years two female artists were able to get my full attention. Now Pipilotti Rist with her unique technic and perspective, and in the past Annie Leibovitz. I was deeply touched by the works of both...More

We have been here twice recently, once for an art class with 5 yr old child, and the second time to take him to children’s exhibition opening. Both times were great. He particularly enjoyed Pipilotti Rist and the exhibition for children.

The Rocks
The first residents of the Rocks were convicts and
sailors from the old nation. As the oldest
neighbourhood in the city, the area's cobblestone
streets host more than 100 heritage sites and
buildings, including the oldest house in Sydney,
Camden Cottage, which was built in 1816. Taste a “midi
“ or a “schooner” of beer and dine “al fresco” on the
waterfront at some of the oldest pubs in Sydney. The
