The Illawarra Pavilion combines some of the natural and cultural treasures of the Illawarra – most notably the distinctive and iconic Flame Tree and selected furniture elements from Wollongong Art Gallery’s Mann-Tatlow Collection – into a spectacular, immersive visitor experience.

Acknowledging that galleries are moving towards participatory rather than observational spaces and that viewership is now in part active, The Illawarra Pavilion can be experienced as part stage set, part multi-perspectival illusion and part hortus conclusus.
