Western Australia’s largest non-government funded arts and craft factory.
Here you can find just about every handcrafted good in existence, including stoneware pottery, timber products, aboriginal crafts, t-shirts, furniture etc, with articles to suit all budgets and tastes.
In 1859 Walter Padbury became the first European to take up land in the district. Padbury was followed by other settlers and very slowly a small village grew up on the banks of Balingup Brook. In 1933, in response to a booming dairy industry, the Balingup Cheese Factory was established
It closed in 1977 and is now one of the most interesting places to visit in Balingup. It houses a variety of arts and crafts, including pottery, wood crafted objects and furniture as well as antiques. Walk through this vast array of artefacts and don’t forget to take a trip down the stairs where all the furniture and antiques are displayed.
