I would encourage people to visit here. We will visit again. The portraits range from our earliest history to modern times and were fascinating. The stories behind each one were worth reading.
“Best Gallery around.”
Closed until August 2019. Fantastic collection of notables from Captain Cook onwards. Covers Australian from most facets of history to the present day.
“Closed for renovations”
What a disappointment that I hadn’t researched my visit better. It was sad to be in Canberra on the first day of winter only to see that the Gallery is closed until August 2019.
