Ivy Hill features the work of significant contemporary artists, both emerging and established, many of whom live and work in the region.
The gallery is located on a farm in the fertile Wapengo Valley between Tathra and Bermagui, in a well known artistic and cultural haven. Ivy Hill's season runs from the beginning of October to the middle of June with exhibitions changing each month. Between June and October the gallery is open by appointment.
After purchasing 80 acres of prime farm land in 2001 at Wapengo, Bill and Carolyn Killen were given this old photograph and told the original name of the holding was Ivy Hill, named after the ivy covered eucalypt in the garden.
Renovation of the two existing farm houses followed, during which the gallery was created to serve as a conduit to the public for the many accomplished artists living in the region.
Situated in the garden was a two room weatherboard cottage with a stone fireplace and chimney of corrugated iron used by loggers working in the nearby forest. The flimsy structure blew down in a storm in 2002, the pergola in the garden marks its position.
