Art Gallery of New South Wales

back Back to Feasts

From its magnificent site in Sydney, the Art Gallery of New South Wales is one of Australia’s flagship art museums and the state’s leading visual arts institution.

Our mission is to serve the widest possible audience as a centre of excellence for the collection, preservation, documentation, interpretation and display of Australian and international art, and a forum of scholarship, art education and the exchange of ideas. 

To plan your visit please visit the Art Gallery of New South Wales’ website here.


Getting Here

The closest train stations are St James and Martin Place, both about 10 minutes walk to the Gallery.

Bus 441 departs from York St side of QVB and drops off near the Gallery. For timetable information, click here.

A courtesy bus departs from the Gallery entrance every 15 minutes from 7pm until close for the Domain Car Park, Martin Place, Wynyard and Town Hall. This service is only available when the Gallery is open late.

There is metered parking available in the streets surrounding the Gallery. You can also park your car at The Domain Car Park which offers $6 off your parking after the first hour (Monday to Friday) when your parking ticket is stamped at the Gallery's information desk (see Art Gallery of NSW for T&Cs).

There are bike racks located at the Gallery's main entrance.


All public areas inside the buildings can be accessed by ramps and lifts (as well as stairs and elevators).

A permanent access ramp provides an alternative to the external stairs at the main entrance to the South Building.

A ramp is positioned on the inside stairs and a Gallery staff member is available for assistance if required. Another wheelchair-accessible access entrance/exit is provided at the rear of the Gallery. A limited number of wheelchairs and mobility scooters are available for use.

Entry into and exit from the North building is via an airlock accessed from Art Gallery Road. Access into the North building does not require the traversing of any stairs. The Welcome Plaza and Entrance Pavilion of the new building have a gentle gradient.

There are three dedicated accessible parking spaces with access from the curb in front of our buildings. Two of these spaces are at the front of our South Building. One is in front of our North Building and is available during Art Gallery opening hours. Two more spaces are located next to the Woolloomooloo Gate entrance to the Royal Botanic Garden Sydney, near the intersection of Art Gallery Road and Mrs Macquaries Road.

Next to the Gallery, the Domain Car Park, operated by Wilson Parking, has accessible lifts and there is a bitumen path from its nearest lift to the Gallery’s rear access entrance.
