Overview

Delight in the art and world-class exhibitions on show at the National Gallery, on the shores of Canberra's Lake Burley Griffin. Art lovers will enjoy meandering through the galleries and admiring the collection, including the famous 'Blue Poles' by Jackson Pollock and the Ned Kelly series by Sidney Nolan.

The new Australian and International art galleries provide plenty of things to see, following a large-scale rehang of almost every piece. The Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander art collection comprises over 7500 works and is the largest globally.
