If you are into timber & design this is the place to visit. There is a small entry fee to keep it operating. The timber work on display changes regularly but was very interesting when we visited. There's also a nice gift shop to explore.

This small exhibition is excellent & well worth a visit. It is located at the south-west corner of the City Park. The many items on display include furniture, ceramics, jewelry, utensils, fabrics, sculpture and glassware; and the gallery area of the building (which is an extension to a converted church building) is itself very well designed with some interesting contemporary...

Easily accessible location next to City Park, there is a special exhibition space (not much when I visited so they discounted the entry which was kind) and then an amazing shop/furniture/homewares area with stunning examples of fine craftmanship. Time to start saving - the pieces were beautiful and definitely worth having a good look at. It's a relaxing space too.

The designs on display are the best Australia has to offer. Sleek, smooth and edgy . Gift shop has a superb range of merino wool garments and some lovely screen printed t shirts too.

This is not a large centre but it does exhibit many rather special wood furniture items well worth a visit

Excellent display of design, especially furniture. Shop has very good, well designed items. The building itself is of historic interest.

We loved this place 5 years ago but turned up in between exhibitions. A small display was nice but not gobsmacking like other times. The excellent shop and pop up display redeemed the situation. But have faith that you may turn up at the right time.

Thank you for your recent visit and feedback! I'm sorry you weren't able to experience the full impact of the building and collection as we were in the middle of a programming changeover. With a small but dedicated team of staff and volunteers turning over 12 exhibitions a year it is inevitable that there is a little down time. I'm... More

This is your place to look for great craftmanship. We were sorry to have not purchased something here but we had already a painting to get home.
