As COVID-19 continues to change the way we live, work and play - The Station's footprint is also changing to best manage public safety.
In line with NSW Government advice, all events have been postponed, and the public platform, kids corner and scooter track are now temporarily closed. You'll also see changes to the way our retailers are operating including temporary shopfront closures - more details below ...
Make Space is an experimental creative workshop and gallery operated by a talented collective of award-winning local artisans. The gallery showcases a collection of local handmade creations including jewellery, homewares, clothing and one-off artworks available for viewing and purchase.
Make Space at The Station is temporarily closed.
Until the workshop and gallery reopens, Make Space artists are still busy working remotely. Your orders, inquiries and commissions are welcome (and encouraged!). To keep supporting our local creatives, follow Make Space on Facebook.
Secret Book Stuff
A beautifully curated sustainable bookshop that's all about keeping the magic or reading alive! Secret Book Stuff's Amy and Laura have hand-selected a collection of over 1000 pre-loved books for sale, and donate all profits to 'Books 4 Outback' volunteer initiative. They also host a free community lending library, poetry readings, workshops and book clubs.
The Bookshop is temporarily closed.
Book sales, Reader's Club and Just Write gatherings are continuing online for the next little while to keep everyone social connected - follow Secret Book Stuff on Facebook to stay up to date.

The huge outdoor event platform at The Station has plenty of space for kids to run around in the open air, and burn energy hopscotch'ing and on the scooter track - BYO scooters and helmets.
The public platform is temporarily closed.
The platform, scooter track and kids corner will reopen at an appropriate time in accordance with public health orders - thank you for your patience and understanding! Follow The Station on Facebook for latest updates.
