I spent my day getting cultured. There is a great art gallery in
the northern part of the central business district (CBD) of sydney.
Head up to the Botanical Gardens
and you're sure to come across the Art Gallery of New South Wales.
The gallery has a superb range of pictures and sculptures of all
shapes, ages and cultures. From Thai Buddhas to Aboriginal art,
taking in portraits and impressionist along the way - and the best
thing is that it's all free!
Wander back south through Hyde park and you'll come across the ANZAC memorial
to the Australians lost in war. The sculpture and building that
it housed in complement each other beautifully. The scuplture is
of a young man who has 'made the ultimate sacrifice' being supported
by three women; his mother, sister and wife - who has a baby in
her arms. It is a poignent reminder of those who are left behind
forced to deal with the fall out of war.

the city for more information, or check out the interactive
