We acknowledge the Gadigal of the Eora Nation, the traditional custodians of the Country on which the Art Gallery of New South Wales stands.

Getting here

Naala Nura, which means ‘seeing Country’, is our historic building on the south part of the site.

Naala Badu, which means ‘seeing waters’, is our new building on the north part of the site.
