If you only have time to visit one art gallery in Melbourne, make it the NGV’s Ian Potter Centre.
Located in the large buildings at the back of Federation Square, this is the first major gallery in the world to be dedicated exclusively to Australian art. There’s a gorgeous collection of Indigenous art here, as well as some brilliant works from artists such as Sidney Nolan, Fred Williams, Tom Roberts, Frederick McCubbin, Arthur Streeton, Albert Tucker and Arthur Boyd.
The permanent exhibition is free to enter, so come back as many times as you like.
