A sanctuary for artists

in the middle of the bush

“The bush is an edge. An untamed wilderness. At the edge of the bush is Eramboo, a little shed in and around which art is made. While Australian sounds assault the senses, artists emerge from a manufactured world. Only in this type of space can originality be rediscovered”

Susan Milne, Greg Stonehouse,

Eramboo Artistic Directors



About Eramboo

Eramboo has been a haven for creativity for decades. The Garigal people developed a rich and complex culture thousands of years ago at the heart of which was their connection to the land. On this same site, Australia’s Socialist Party once had its headquarters, and the building also belonged to Sydney’s most forward-thinking educators at the former Independent School. Under the tutelage of Bill Eason, the school's three rules were freedom, tolerance and self-discipline. 22 years ago, Eramboo Artist Environment was established by Greg Stonehouse and Susan Milne as an education and environment centre for artists, continuing the place's connection to free thinking and creativity.
