Gift Membership

Giftees receive a welcome pack including their membership card, limited-edition tote bag and information on benefits. If they're more of a minimalist, you can select a paperless membership and they'll receive a digital card. Memberships can be purchased at the Gallery or online.

For more information on delivery of the welcome pack, correspondence to the giftee, or gifts purchased for existing Members, please read our FAQ, or get in touch with the membership team.


Members enjoy a range of benefits, including free unlimited entry to paid exhibitions, access to special events, discounts in our shop and café, and more.

Guest pass

If you’d like to add something extra, a guest pass enables your giftee to bring others to any of our many exhibitions or events. You can add a $25 guest pass to their membership (or $75 for a 3-year membership). When visiting the Gallery, both your giftee and their guest receive the benefits of being a Member. A guest pass is valid in conjunction with an annual membership and will be loaded onto the existing card.
