Absolutely loved the indigenous art exhibition and cyclone Tracy displays, rich in culture and information. The 'Unruly Days' exhibition running at the moment is very interesting too. Well worth the visit!

We visited the Gallery on our recent visit to Darwin and were pleasantly surprised by what we saw. The Cyclone Tracy exhibit was fascinating and the 2 current exhibitions really interesting. Well worth a visit while in Darwin.
