The exterior view of the Art Gallery of South Australia

Art Gallery of South Australia

Just across the road from Rundle Mall sits the Art Gallery of South Australia, one of several major cultural institutions that line North Terrace.

Almost one million visitors make their way through the Art Gallery of South Australia's doors each year, treated to multiple wings housing an impressive selection of more than 40,000 paintings, sculptures, prints, sketches, photographs, textiles and design works from every corner of the globe, with a focus on Australian and Aboriginal art.

Over the years, the gallery has exhibited the works of world-famous artists including Andy Warhol, Robert Hannaford, Diane Arbus and Del Kathryn Barton, to name only a few.

Prior to the purpose-built gallery (now the Elder wing) opening in 1900, South Australia's art collection was housed together with the library and museum collection in the South Australian Institute. Subsequent wings were added in 1936, 1962 and 1996 to house the ever-growing collections.

A juxtaposition of rustic and urban industrial styling, Wurst and Stein is an underground oasis to escape the hustle and bustle of Grenfell Street. Enjoy brews from around the world, a menu that screams "flavour" or host your next private party.
