The Australian Centre For Contemporary Art is another gallery and learning institute located in Melbourne. The ACCA, unlike ACOPA, is a contemporary art gallery. Even though you’ll come across many modern art work and displays here, each of them is linked to original and traditional art styles.

To reach this gallery, head down to the Sturt Street art precinct in Southbank.

Australian Centre For Contemporary Art, ACCA Melbourne

This art gallery is one of the newer established galleries in the city. Back in 2002, Wood and Marsh Pty Ltd built this beautiful establishment.

When you visit ACCA, you’ll enter a creative and innovative environment that features excellent architecture, themed sculptures and a unique rust-red building. In fact, this building has become one of the most significant establishments in Melbourne’s Art Precinct.

At ACCA, some of the most popular displays and exhibits feature Australia’s leading contemporary art; including visually creative and innovative art forms. Visitors often come here to explore the modern architecture of this distinctive steel building. The staff at ACCA always try to bring some of the most unique, latest and significant artworks by many enthusiastic artists hailing from Australia and abroad.

The centre also includes two rehearsal studios for artists and students to practice. In addition, there is also a large set at the Playbox for all enthusiastic artists and students to learn and perform.

Visitors will be happy to know that this rustic building also features a charming and lively space at the onsite café; where gallery visitors, employees and artists can sit back, relax and relish some in a quick meal.
