Getting to the NFSA

We are situated in the heart of Canberra on McCoy Circuit, Acton, between the shores of Lake Burley Griffin and the grounds of the Australian National University. Just a 10-minute walk from the city and state bus interchanges.

 

Culture Loop - Free Shuttle Bus

The NFSA is one of the nine stops on the new Culture Loop shuttle bus. The free service runs seven days a week from 9.00am to 5.00pm, stopping at the NFSA every hour, from 9:15am to 4:15pm.

The Culture Loop is a new way to experience one good thing after another in the nation’s capital, connecting visitors with some of Canberra's most loved cultural attractions and places of interest. Park once and ride the shuttle to your favourite venues and experience an array of exhibitions, galleries, collections, stories and events.
