How to do Sydney on a Budget

In this city, many of the best things in life really are free – from lazing around the beaches or checking out the wildlife, to admiring Sydney’s outstanding art collection.

Art museums

ART GALLERY OF NSW 1

Inside this stately Neoclassical building lies an exuberant collection. Blockbuster touring exhibitions arrive regularly and there’s an outstanding collection of Australian art, including a substantial indigenous section. A range of free guided tours is offered (artgallery.nsw.gov.au; Art Gallery Rd; 10am–5pm Thu–Tue, to 10pm Wed; free).

MUSEUM OF CONTEMPORARY ART 2

A slice of Gotham City on Circular Quay West, the stately Art Deco MCA has been raising eyebrows since 1991. Constantly changing exhibitions range from the hip to in-your-face, sexually explicit and somewhat disturbing. You’ll also fnd aboriginal art featured prominently. There are daily guided tours (mca.com.au; 140 George St; 10am–5pm Fri–Wed, to 9pm Thu; free).
