MGA’s collection is incredibly unique; the only public collection solely dedicated to Australian photography. Over the last three decades the collection has grown exponentially and now numbers over 3,100 Australian photographs that narrates the history of photography in Australia. The collection has continued to develop in depth and significance through a combination of acquisitions and donated works.

A central aspect of the collection is collecting contemporary artists.
