Housed in an imposing building on the shore of Lake Burley Griffin, the National Gallery is a collection of artworks from both Australian and international painters.
It is open daily 10am to 5pm. You can wander freely through the exhibition areas, or use a guided audio tour (free of charge) if you want to study the artworks in detail. Guided tours are also available; these last about one hour and concentrate on one of the exhibition areas.
We also enjoyed the outdoor exhibition of sculptures and installations - these lead from the outdoor cafe area, along the edge of the lake.
Parking is available under the building (no charge).
