National Gallery of Australia
Established in 1911, the gallery has been housed across the road from the High Court since 1982. With over 100 000 works, the collection provides a brilliant overview of Australian art. The international collection is just as impressive and includes Jackson Pollock’s Blue Poles and Australian-born Ron Mueck’s Pregnant Woman. Enjoy a picnic lunch in the tranquil Sculpture Garden, which comprises a series of native gardens and contains over 50 sculptures set between the gallery and the lake.
