$gal = get_post_galleries_images( 2179 );

#2 Append the image URLs to the post content if post has gallery in content

A simple example of how to append the raw image URLs to the content of any post or page that has at least one gallery.

add_filter( 'the_content', 'wpdocs_show_gallery_image_urls' );

/**
 * Add list of image URLs to the content if displaying 
 * a post with one or more image galleries.
 *
 * @param string $content Post content.
 *
 * @return string (Maybe modified) post content.
 */
function wpdocs_show_gallery_image_urls( $content ) {
	global $post;

	// Only do this on singular items.
	if ( ! is_singular() ) {
		return $content;
	}

	// Make sure the post has a gallery in it.
	if ( ! has_shortcode( $post->post_content, 'gallery' ) ) {
		return $content;
	}

	// Retrieve all galleries of this post.
	$galleries = get_post_galleries_images( $post );

	if ( ! empty( $galleries ) ) {
		$image_list = '<ul>';

		// Loop through all galleries found
		foreach( $galleries as $gallery ) {
			// Loop through each image in each gallery.
			foreach ( $gallery as $image ) {
				$image_list .= '<li>' . $image . '</li>';
			}
		}

		$image_list .= '</ul>';

		// Append our image list to the content of our post
		$content .= $image_list;
	}
