Given its name, I expected more from this venue. A huge modern and interesting building, which is worth a look in itself, but then the exhibition spaces didn't deliver. I'll go anywhere to check out a modern art or sculpture exhibition and I've seen better...More

Recognised as one of the world's most iconic buildings, gravitated to the building to see this appeal - described as "the poetry of the red centre of Australia", it is a departure from the focus on green space. It is certainly interesting but the artwork...More

The artwork are nice and impressive, I didn't expect the hall is that small though, I wish it will expand when having my next visit. There is Cafe and bookshop corner, worth for a walk.

Deceptively grand exterior but what a lovely find. The installations throughout were varied, colorful, and memorable. The front desk staff was great, too, stashing our bags and coats away and giving us a list of other nearby galleries on our way out.
