The Ian Potter Centre: NGV Australia is an art gallery that houses the Australian part of the art collection of the National Gallery of Victoria.

It is the world’s first major gallery dedicated exclusively to Australian art and comprises over 20 galleries housed within a landmark architectural complex.

NGV Australia presents the history of Australian art from the Colonial period and the Heidelberg School through to contemporary art, and includes photography, prints and drawings, fashion and textiles, decorative arts, and a suite of galleries dedicated to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander art.

It also holds special exhibitions and educational programs.

Review:


A great gallery of Australian art which contains many iconic Australian paintings and artwork. The collection is varied and includes a wide range of styles. There are a number of galleries and I find it best to explore the Centre with multiple visits which is easy to do since it is conveniently located in Federation Square and has free admission. Some of the most famous painting include those by Sidney Nolan and "Shearing the Rams" by Tom Roberts.

For families, be advised that some images in some exhibitions may not be suitable for all visitors.
