The Rocks Museums and Galleries
Museum of Contemporary Art Australia
140 George St., The Rocks
Sydney’s MCA focuses on the boundary-pushing work of today’s living artists, many of them Australian. Perched on the edge of Sydney Harbour, the collection is intended to feel alive, and as a result, new exhibits are a regular occurrence. The MCA champions its creative learning programs, which cater to everyone, at every age, and can range from creating artworks from everyday materials to making sound responses to the painting or sculpture in front of you. Paintings aside, we also highly recommend the stunning rooftop café for a coffee or as a place to spend a morning with your laptop, an assortment of sculptures, and a bird’s-eye view of Sydney Harbour.
