S.H. Ervin Gallery is located in the historic National Trust Centre on Observatory Hill, just to the south of the Sydney Harbour Bridge. This gallery is one of Sydney's most respected art institutions, and its collections and travelling exhibitions aim to showcase the diverse approaches of Australian artists. The gallery features historic and contemporary pieces across a variety of media and styles.
The gallery is very popular for school groups and other mass excursions. Its building used to be part of Fort Street School, and dates back to the late 1800s. A café is provided on the premises if you'd like to extend your journey to the gallery and further enjoy its atmosphere. If visiting, ensure you leave time for a stroll on the headland nearby, because its view of the harbour should never be missed, day or night.
The gallery is within walking distance of the CBD and other galleries in The Rocks area. You can also access it by public transport; just don't expect to find an easy car park in the surrounding office and residential areas. Address: Kent Street, Millers Point, NSW, 2000.
