Awesome products! Sadly you can't see much if the factory but one of the ladies from the shop shared lots of info about the product and answered all our questions . We thought it was a great experience and well worth the visit .

We had such an awesome time at the Open Day. So much to see and do. Everyone was so nice and helpful. The products they have are so diverse! Everything from Dukkha to candles and everything made from Sandalwood. They even make fudge with the nuts! I bought so many great products, got gonged (incredible) and had a Devonshire tea... More

Have a look at this place for something a bit different. The products aren't particularly cheap but I always great comments on my perfume from here when I wear it. Make sure you sign up for the Gong and Cone session, which is an amazing meditation experience.

This place has a very good selection of sandlewood products. It is a bit pricey but interesting. They did light some incense when asked.

Made a special visit to this location. Essentially its just a shop with sandlewood products. If that's what you're looking for, great and stop as you're passing but dont make a special visit. There is a factory to be seen through a glass window but it wasn't operating. The cafe looks cheap and cheerful... probably the highlight.

You have to like and believe in the therapeutic value of Sandalwood to buy products from here. But many do and the factory and display area is a good place to visit, especially if you take the short tour. There is a nice café and some interesting local handicrafts for sale.

Many years ago I saw a TV documentary on the growing of Sandalwood trees in North West Australia. I was so interested in the fact that it was in short supply around the world and I thought I want to buy shares in this Company but unfortunately at the time it was not a public listed company.. we came upon...

We could not do the regular tour as several school parties were going to the factory. We did get the offer of a short personal tour which was interesting. We also watched the video which explained the production e.t.c. Plenty of products to see, try and buy.

The Sandalwood Factory (Mount Romance) is situated just north of Albany on the way to Mount Barker. Beautiful new sampling, history and shop area. Products are exceptional. Bring your Visa with you - you wont regret it.
