Juniper Hall

Located at 250 Oxford Street, Paddington NSW 2021.

Juniper Hall is one of Sydney’s oldest houses, built in 1824.  It is home to the Moran Arts Foundation Collection and while it is not a permanent art gallery, it is the stunning backdrop for the Moran Prizes exhibition and several other art exhibitions.

Juniper Hall is an example of Georgian architecture and is one of the oldest houses in Sydney.  Juniper Hall was built by the emancipated convict Robert Cooper in 1824 to fulfill a promise to his third wife, Sarah, to build her the finest house in Sydney. Cooper, a wealthy hotel and distillery owner in London, had been transported to Sydney in 1813 for receiving stolen goods.

Purchased from The National Trust of Australia (NSW),  by the Moran family, the historic Georgian building is an important new exhibition space including the display of the winning works and finalists from the Doug Moran National Portrait Prize and the Moran Contemporary Photographic Prize.
