If you love all things sandalwood this is the place to visit. There are so many products to choose from, you can also take a short tour of the factory and once your done enjoy an amazing slice of cake and coffee in the coffee shop. This is a must do if your in the area.

Don't miss this treasure, just up the road from Albany. The ladies that work there are full of information about sandalwood, where it grows, how it's produced and so on. Who knew sandalwood was a parasite?Then there is the products, so many to choose from. You will not be disappointed.

As the name says, its a Sandalwood Factory with a retail outlet and a cafe. But what takes the cake is The Gong Experience. We just dropped in after reading the reviews and luckily got to tickets for Gong Meditation. Its an amazing experience and if you are tired from lots of walking and looking for some sound sleep treatment... More

It's no wonder why this is rated so highly on TripAdvisor since it sells a good range of products based on its sole major ingredient, sandalwood oil. You might imagine the busloads of visitors arriving and leaving with full bags (and emptier wallets perhaps). One final point - if the shop does have a special going on, you may have... More

We experienced gonging in a custom built room - deeply re-charging and highly recommended. Afterwards we steeped our senses in sandalwood. The shop is commercial and it was quite a surprise to have a gonging room attached, but Shishanna (sp? sorry) is an expert.

I loved the cone, the gong & the bowl it is a original experience in a sixteen sided room. The Gongs wash over & through you producing a positive effect on many different levels. An unforgettable experience! My teenagers all had different stories coming away from it. Hippie and relaxing, healing and spacy, very relaxing, mediative. Each time that I... More

quite an upmarket location about 10km's North of Albany, close to airport, free entry with a nice cafe, it has a lot of Sandalwood products but it is quite expensive but tailored to the top end of town.
