So this gallery seemed to have more Aboriginal Art and paintings - next to some of the pieces they would have a little history which is a nice gesture as one feels a lot more connection with artist. They didn't allow pictures inside

Although this art gallery is tiny it did have some interesting art inside, including aboriginal paintings and sculptures and provided some information about the artists. Can get a bit claustrophobic if too many people in there, but worth a visit.

This little gallery, is FREE and a little gem of a place. Gives great history on Early settlement of Sydney and also ties in the relationship with indigenious people. The fella behind the counter is really down to earth and genuine. Great little diversion. Thanks...More
