About The David Roche Foundation

The David Roche Foundation was established in 1999 by the late Mr David J Roche AM (1930-2013) to be the recipient and custodian of the exceptional collection of antiques, paintings and objets d’art accumulated by him over his lifetime and to be preserved for future generations.

David Roche’s home, Fermoy House on Melbourne Street, North Adelaide and the new, adjoining building, constitute the exceptional art institution known as The David Roche Foundation House Museum and make the collection accessible to the public.

The magnificent pieces contained in the collection, particularly those from past centuries, are presented in an opulent manner, reminiscent of how David lived in Fermoy House. By contrast, the museum’s temporary exhibition space is an opportunity to experience aspects of his collection through thematic displays.
