Location: 1-5 Hickson Road, The Rocks, NSW 2000

Constructed: 1884-1885

The Australian Steam Navigation Building, constructed in 1884 in the rare Pre-Federation Anglo Dutch architectural style, is a piece of artwork in its own right! It is a very rare and fine Victorian example of an office and warehouse development in Sydney, and with its prominent waterfront location, the Australian Steam Navigation Building is the perfect venue to view the colourful and vibrant works of the world famous Australian artist, Ken Done.
