Self-guided visits

Self-guided visits

For ease of access, all education groups, even those intending a self-guided visit, are encouraged to book, providing us with details of the date and time of your visit, student numbers and the exhibition or collection area to be visited.

Entry to the Gallery is free; however, there are charges to some special temporary exhibitions. Booked educational groups are eligible for discounted entry, with the accompanying lecturer receiving free entry.

To receive the concessional rate:

  • students must be booked in advance as a group
  • all students must present at the ticketing desk together as one group (students arriving without the group will be charged full admission)
  • a single payment must be made to cover the whole group, either by credit card, cash or cheque, to the Public Programs office (report to Reception, upper level)

Bookings must be made at least one day in advance, although earlier bookings are recommended.

Drawing in the Gallery

Lecturers or tutors interested in conducting group drawing sessions in the Gallery must book in advance in order to ensure the accessibility of Gallery spaces, the safety of your students and other visitors, and to protect the artworks. Individuals sketching in the Gallery are kindly asked to use graphite only (no ink, charcoal or other messy materials) and to keep drawing boards or sketchbooks to a maximum of A3 size.
