Building 18 near the Parramatta River is one of the largest armament storehouses constructed prior to World War 2 and it now houses a flexible exhibition space that can accommodate 500 visitors at one time. This extraordinary heritage building has the longest uninterrupted wall space of any gallery in Australia, making it a favourite location for large-scale exhibitions such as the annual ARTEXPRESS.
