University Challenge

You won't get a degree at the end of this trail, but we guarantee you'll feel better educated!

Sydney's Universities are home to a suprising diversity of collections, from ancient cultures to contemporary art, natural history to sporting history, and even the medical sciences.

Stroll through the eastern suburbs campuses of the University of New South Wales and, in central Sydney, the University of Technology and the University of Sydney campuses in Camperdown and Rozelle. In the leafy northwest explore Macquarie University and don't forget to linger over a coffee or a beer at the student haunts along your way.

Tip: Sydney's Universities, including their museums and galleries, often offer public lectures, performances and workshops, so check out what's on when you're planning your visit.

Museums & Galleries of NSW helps small-medium museums, galleries and Aboriginal cultural centres create exciting experiences for visitors and, through this, thriving local NSW communities. We don't run museums, galleries and cultural centres but we care about those who do. We develop their skills, connect them with others in the industry, provide funding, point visitors their way, and give them access to ground-breaking exhibitions.

Museums & Galleries of NSW is supported by the NSW Government through Create NSW.
