Set on North Terrace, the city’s main corridor, this well-curated museum offers a comprehensive overview of the Australian art scene, both historic and contemporary, with a special focus on indigenous art and a continent-spanning Asian collection that includes the only dedicated Islamic gallery space in Australia. Rotating exhibitions tend to offer a more global outlook. General admission is free, while special exhibitions may require a fee.
