Top Notch Local Arts and Crafts
Jul 2020
This beautiful gallery space offers the best local crafts in Sydney. Items are available in every price range and in every art discipline. I visit here many times a year as the craft offerings can be different.

Excellent arts and crafts center
Oct 2019
This is a must see when in Sydney. Well laid out little museum with no admission fees and a good collection of local arts and crafts to see. Would go there again.

There was a wonderful range of locally designed arts and craft that would make excellent presents for those back home.

Closed when it was supposed to be open

They were supposed to be open but closed for no apparent reason - no sign on the door despite people obviously being inside.

Everything in one Place

We did a one day tour of the Cabot Trail the day before, and because we were travelling the entirety of the trail in one day, we didn’t have time to stop at all the small souvenir craft stores. So we were pleasantly surprised when we found little gem hidden in Sydney that had so many of them on display and for sale! A great selection of hand made art and crafts ranging in price from low to high. You are certain to find something here to take home!

Wide Variety
Jul 2019 • Family
This is a nice showroom for samplings of what you will see on the island. We definitely saw many of the featured pieces/artists on the Cabot Trail. I think the prices here are only slightly higher than at the boutiques ($22 instead of $20 for a pair of earrings for example). It’s light and airy inside, but the neighborhood seems a little sketchy. We had no trouble finding parking. We fed the meter $2 on a Saturday but were informed by a local that it was unnecessary on weekends.

This should be number 1.

I am gobsmacked that the big fiddle is the no 1 attraction in Sydney. This craft centre is well stocked, well laid out, and gives a great insight into local arts and crafts. Long may it flourish.
