Sydney is alive with great art and art exhibition spaces–

from major institutions like the Art Gallery of NSWand the Museum of Contemporary Art, to incredible privately-owned but publicly accessible galleries like White Rabbit, and right down to a thriving scene of independent and artist-run initiatives.

Those who want to explore the art scene in Sydney don’t have to wander too far; institutions such as the Museum of Contemporary Art sit proudly by the water in Circular Quay, the Art Gallery of New South Wales is perched at the top of the city’s Botanical Gardens.

For those who want to explore off the beaten track and find some hidden gems off the main streets, there are many top galleries.
