Bungendore / Lake GeorgeOnly 30 minutes from Canberra and 2.5 hours from Sydney, Bungendore Village and the surrounding region is a place to be immersed in a relaxed rural lifestyle, so take some time to explore. Bungendore is home to a diverse array of galleries specialising in woodwork, fine art, leatherwear, crafts and photography.
Bungendore Wood Works Gallery
There is something quintessentially Australian about wood. No one understands this more than passionate woodworker David MacLaren. A former New York playwright, David’s love affair with woodworking began when he joined a woodworkers cooperative in Manhattan.
In Australia, David set up the Bungendore Wood Works Gallery. Specialising in promoting Australian wood art, sculpture, craft, contemporary furniture and fine arts of the highest standard it regularly exhibits the country’s leading designer/makers in wood and visual artists.
Established 30 years ago, this multi-tourism award winning Gallery has become a local landmark and regional institution – a must see when visiting Canberra and south-east NSW.
While you are there be sure to stop in at Café Wood Works for their relaxed art-space ambience. The food is generous in flavour and portion, and the coffee is superb.
