Equal parts subtle and dramatic

Bundanon Reimagined

A light-filled contemporary art museum – partially buried in the landscape – sits at the heart of the new plan for Bundanon, with a dramatic bridge structure landing onto an expansive public plaza near the existing nineteenth century buildings.

Build Progress

On the 29th of July the build reached a new milestone! The bridge that will lead visitors across the gully to the new gallery and facilities has been lifted and bolted into place.


Builder Announced

We are really looking forward to bringing back our $43M art collection to the site and to welcoming Shoalhaven residents, who have been our greatest supporters, to the new facility at the end of next year, along with tourists from all over Australia and the world.
- Deborah Ely, CEO Bundanon Trust

Bundanon Trust is pleased to announce that construction company ADCO have been appointed to undertake the construction of the new art museum and cultural facility at Bundanon.

ADCO’s bid was considered outstanding for its quality of response, track record of achievement and competitive pricing. With an extensive portfolio of projects in the cultural and education sectors the company has completed over 3,500 projects across Australia, valued at $14billion.

Early works have been undertaken by Shoalhaven company Jervis Bay Group (JBG), with excavation for the main art museum building beginning in April 2020. As their work continued, the shape of new roads and carparks, a footbridge over the creek and the enormous space for the subterranean art museum has emerged.

Construction of the new art museum and creative learning centre began in July 2020, with an anticipated completion date of October 2021.
