All public areas inside the buildings can be accessed by ramps and lifts (as well as stairs and elevators).
A permanent access ramp provides an alternative to the external stairs at the main entrance to the South Building.
A ramp is positioned on the inside stairs and a Gallery staff member is available for assistance if required. Another wheelchair-accessible access entrance/exit is provided at the rear of the Gallery. A limited number of wheelchairs and mobility scooters are available for use.
Entry into and exit from the North building is via an airlock accessed from Art Gallery Road. Access into the North building does not require the traversing of any stairs. The Welcome Plaza and Entrance Pavilion of the new building have a gentle gradient.
There are three dedicated accessible parking spaces with access from the curb in front of our buildings. Two of these spaces are at the front of our South Building. One is in front of our North Building and is available during Art Gallery opening hours. Two more spaces are located next to the Woolloomooloo Gate entrance to the Royal Botanic Garden Sydney, near the intersection of Art Gallery Road and Mrs Macquaries Road.
Next to the Gallery, the Domain Car Park, operated by Wilson Parking, has accessible lifts and there is a bitumen path from its nearest lift to the Gallery’s rear access entrance.
