National Gallery of Australia

National Gallery of Australia

The National Gallery of Australia, located on the shores of Lake Burley Griffin, houses Australia’s largest collection of art. Queen Elizabeth II unveiled the cubic concrete edifice in October 1982, and it contains 11 main galleries on three levels, as well as a huge sculpture garden planned out according to the four seasons. The collection, which comprises pieces from Australia, Asia, Europe, America, and the Pacific, as well as the world’s biggest collection of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander art, was purchased in 1968. Sculpture, ornamental art, drawings, book illustrations, sketchbooks, photography, films, ceramics, costumes, and textiles are among the mediums used. The numerous special exhibitions will appeal to both locals and visitors. Following your tour of the gallery, you’ll visit the adjacent High Court of Australia, which features fountains, Carrara marble flooring, and murals.
