While in The Rocks neighbourhood, don’t miss the Museum of Contemporary Art. The cool Art Deco building, with its blocks of black and white concrete split by walls of glass, sits at the water’s edge, and was once the home of the Maritime Services Board. Today, the building boasts arguably the best collection of contemporary art in Australia. Alongside an eclectic mix of temporary exhibitions, there are four main collections at the museum. The Ramingining Collection displays work from Yolŋu artists – an Aboriginal Australian people from the Arnhem Land in the northeast of the country. The Maningrida Collection features art from the Maningrida community, who are also from Arnhem Land. In the Arnott Collection, you'll find bark paintings donated by the Arnott family (famous in Australia for Arnotts Biscuits), and in the Smorgon Collection, there's Australian art from the late-twentieth century, donated by Loti and Victor Smorgon. The museum is closed on Mondays, with longer opening hours on Fridays. Image by Photoholgic from Unsplash
