The National Portrait Gallery is temporarily closed to the public until further notice.

Menu

The National Portrait Gallery acknowledges the Traditional Custodians of Country throughout Australia and recognises the continuing connection to lands, waters and communities. We pay our respect to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander cultures and to Elders both past and present.

Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander viewers are warned that this website contains images of deceased persons.

In their own words

We let the portraits of these remarkable Australians speak for themselves. Be intrigued and inspired by two-minute personal stories told by the subjects and the artists, and download the audio-guide for iOS and android for a mobile experience.
