Brett Whiteley Studio Surry Hills in Sydney
Free, Quirky/offbeat, Popular with locals

For an intimate gallery experience, check out the former home and studio of the late Australian artist Brett Whiteley (1939-1992) in Surry Hills. Whiteley is famous for dazzling, abstract paintings of Sydney Harbour in startling orange or blue, as well as self-portraits, landscapes, sculptures, and mixed-media collages. Prior to his death, he lived in this converted warehouse from 1985 to 1992. Downstairs hosts compact changing exhibitions and a small shop. Upstairs you can still see many of his personal belongings—from books to records, postcards, and inspirational mementos—and his studio has been left intact. The gallery only opens Friday to Sunday, but is free. Just look for the two giant matchstick sculptures outside.
