Went to see Mambo exhibition. This was excellent. Had been to gallery before this day and was disappointed in lack of paintings on display. Would only visit if something on in future.

I visit the gallery once a month or so and there's always something new and interesting. I like the combination of historical work from the collection and the new exhibitions.

Not a huge venue and display area. Dress-up area in the corner was fun for kids. Parking can be difficult to find but nicely located opposite Civic Park.

Well worth a trip to see the Mambo exhibition. There are lots of pieces to illustrate the huge impact of this irreverent and iconic brand on Australian society. From the Pauline Hansen graphic to Classic tshirts and shirts.

Very interesting walk around the Gallery on an extremely hot day outside. It was wonderful to see and activity for children in the Gallery and the Mambo Exhibition was a "blast from the past" for my husband and I. The staff were helpful and friendly.

Free entry 2 very different displays... Mambo and Portrait competition entries... enjoyed them both, Mambo for its humour and colour and the portraits for the variety of interpretations.

Currently showing the Kilgour Prize. Lots of good special exhibitions but a good showing of their own collection. Lovely place to take visitors.
