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

What you need to know before visiting

The Art Gallery of New South Wales’ campus includes a new building, known as the North Building, which is located next to the original building, now known as the South Building.

The Art Gallery also manages the Brett Whiteley Studio in Surry Hills.
