  • Nice, free to the public, art collection housed on Peter Jefferson's former estate. The free guided tour was 20 - 30 minutes long. The guide wasn't super knowledgeable, but did know some facts about the collection. The best part is the painting area where a few "traditional" aboriginal art supplies are provided at no cost. You can make your own art after being inspired in the gallery rooms.
