Starting in the Grand Hyatt in Melbourne, 1985, the Billich Gallery relocated to Sydney’s The Rocks in 1993, where it has become very much part of the life and soul of this historic area of Sydney. Moving to its current landmark Sydney Rocks building (once home to naval sailors), fifteen years ago, The Billich Gallery is regularly visited and admired by local and international Billich collectors and followers alike.
Over recent years, two additional Billich Gallery have opened. The first, opening in 2017, is the Billich Gallery in Beijing. A creative hub in China, this Billich Gallery hangs many significant Billich paintings and artworks. The second, opening mid 2018, is the Billich Gallery in Monaco, an intimate space which exhibits an important selection of Billich nudes and dance.
The Rocks is one of Sydney’s most well-known and historically significant areas. A hub for art, markets, food, entertainment and shopping, it is a truly inspiring part of Sydney and a must-visit area for all visitors to the city.
With more than fifty cafes, restaurants and hotels in The Rocks, this is truly an exciting foodie destination. You can choose from Neil Perry’s Sake restaurant or Quay in the Overseas Passenger Terminal for a premium dining experience, or enjoy the stunning views at Harbour Bar & Kitchen. There are also many pubs to enjoy a shopping pitstop such as The Orient or The Argyle. Just want a coffee? You can get a great caffe latte at Kansas City Shuffle & Tuxedo.
With a wonderful variety of stalls lining the cobblestone streets, the Rocks area is loved by Sydney- siders and visitors for its diverse markets. Held in a spectacular and historic setting, the artisanal markets occur each Saturday and Sunday, while the Foodie Market sets each Friday. Drawing collectors keen to source locally-designed fashion, handcrafted jewellery and original art from some of the city’s most talented artisans, designers and providors, the Rocks Markets is a must-visit area for all visitors to the city.
