Throughout the year, we welcome personal callers from all over the world, but please note we do not keep normal business hours: Please contact us well ahead to make an appointment, so your trip is not in vain and we can entertain you properly.

Our large, modern factory showroom is on the edge of an industrial estate in suburban Peakhurst, within a stone’s throw of the vast tract of George’s River bushland about half an hour south of the famous Opera House on Sydney Harbour.

The directions on this page should make it easy for you to find our premises no matter how you are traveling.

Public Transport
NSW Public Transport Info 2K gifBy public transport from the centre of Sydney, take a train on the Illawarra (Blue) line to Mortdale. This line begins in the east at Bondi Junction and passes through Kings Cross before heading south at Central. You can most easily catch this train from either platform 25 at Central, or platform 4 at Town Hall: Make sure the indicator light is lit against “Mortdale” to signify the train will stop there

A pleasant twenty-minute walk from Mortdale station will bring you to our shop—please use the map below. Or you can catch a number 944 bus to Punchbowl and alight at the golf course roundabout. Follow Lorraine Street to the right, and when you reach the small park our shop is in the industrial complex opposite. Taxis are also readily available at the station if you prefer, and will cost about $8—the buses only depart every half hour or so, and in the warmer weather of summer the walk is only for the fit.

Airport arrivals
For travelers arriving from the airport, a taxi is best. The trip takes at least 15 or 20 minutes and costs from $35 to $60 depending on the terminal and the traffic conditions which vary according to time of day. There is a rail link from Domestic and International Terminals: You can purchase a ticket to Mortdale, but check the platform indicators because you probably need to change trains at Wolli Creek station.

Immediately after the runway tunnel, take the M5 exit left off General Holmes Drive. Continue westward, and take the last exit before the toll, Route 3, King Georges Road. Turn left, and continue past the big palm trees in the Beverley Hills shopping area, and then turn right into Stoney Creek Road. This is signposted to Peakhurst. Stoney Creek Road joins Forest Road where you should turn right. The next set of lights is Boundary Road where you turn left.

Driving from Canberra or the Southern Highlands

After the Y-intersection with Stoney Creek Road, take the next lights left into Boundary Road.

The last section, from Boundary Road
