What a delightful place to visit. The pottery is made on site and every piece is unique. There are other gift ideas that have been sourced to compliment the pottery. Put this on your agenda when in Yeppoon yo wont be disappointed

Taken there by a local. Not cheap but that's to be expected from artisanal work. Staff at the desk not particularly helpful or friendly (took points away).

Called in for a look around whilst touring. Found a little hideaway of interesting pottery and glassware. Friendly staff, well worth dropping in for a look.
