Exploring National Gallery of Australia

The country’s largest art museum is home to a mind-blowing collection of over 166,000 works of art.

As such it offers a variety of accommodation options from five star hotels to more budget options.

The National Portrait Gallery's collection tells stories of achievement, individuality, independence, and exploration in Australia.

Located to the south of Lake Burley Griffin, the National Library of Australia contains a collection of more than five million books. Bookworms will want to visit on Thursdays, when a special complimentary guided tour is conducted.

Transportation near National Gallery of Australia

Canberra International Airport is handily located minutes away from the city centre. It’s well served by flights from other major Australian cities, including Sydney, Melbourne, Adelaide, Brisbane, and Perth. Taxis are readily available once you land, and an Airport Express shuttle bus runs in the daytime. You may want to consider hiring a car for your trip, as Canberra is very much a driving city. That said, there are also frequent and reliable bus services covering most major sights and attractions.
