There was some really good local art here however I would recommend that they have a bit of a dust of the cobwebs and work on the displays. We had gone out there in search of a local Japanese artist's works, however the assistant didn't have much knowledge about it - it was her first day so no real problem.... More

I guess the fun part of visiting a place is seeking out the hidden pockets. While the light commercial park area is not on the tourist trail where this gallery exists, it is near a local shopping centre so I'm guessing transport is not an issue. Luckily though we had a car since the day was quite warm. The art... More

Don't be put off by the street frontage as it was well worth a look. The artist in residence was enthusiastic and informative and loved showing us his latest project, a model of the Sun Picture Theatre, and the talked about the artist for each of the artworks we showed interest in.

The Broome Factory is a little hard to find and you will need to ask for directions or get a taxi. Live in artists display their original work in a typical Broome House come shed environment. An excellent visual display of some stunning local art with some very querky pieces.

This place is a decent way out of town and it wasn't worth the cab fare. It's in terrible shape, really dusty and some of the pieces were covered in cobwebs! While there were some beautiful pieces they were very overpriced given the location (overhead can't be very high!). Unless you had a rental car and some time to kill... More

I come from a background of art, graphic design and advertising. I have travelled to Ayers Rock and outback Australia and viewed art at those places. This exhibition is small and in my mind not exemplary. Not worth the effort of finding the tin shed housing the art. Sorry.

Great to see some unique local artwork. The appearance of the premise may put you off a little, but if the gate is open drive in and the people are friendly.

Drove out to the Broome Factory this morning to check out the latest works by the local artist collective. I think there are 16 artists who create and show there work at this old factory site. I liked best the striking works of sculpture fashioned from palm tree fronds and pods. The colours and finish were exquisite. The Factory is... More

drove out of the way to find it and it was padlocked up, don't know if it still exists, was excited about seeing local handiwork but it wasn't to be, if it has closed down then ads should be removed

Saw this factory on Trip Advisor when I was leaving a review. I had no seen it in any other brochures or maps. Read the reviews and decided it was worth a look. Well I agree with all the other reviews, it is worth taking the time to look around this gallery. The works of the artists are unique, varied... More
