Tantawangalo: Where To Go / Sightseeing


Bemboka, "Village in a Valley" was originally settled as a halfway point between Bega and Cooma. The first main settlers arrived in Bemboka in 1871, and were mainly a dairying community with a large number of butter factories in the town.

A telegraph station was situated at Brown Mountain and received its first telegraph in September of 1885. A pioneer walk has been established in the Bemboka Park honouring the pioneers of the district.

Today Bemboka is a quaint rural village with a backdrop of the Bemboka National Park towering over the township. Scenic views of the whole Sapphire Coast from Pipers Lookout have to be seen to be believed. The new viewing platform and visitor information is an introduction to the wonders of the South East Forests National Park. Lyrebirds line the forest trails and wombats wander the lush rolling countryside.

Some are from the owner's collection, others sourced from the secondary market. All items are available for sale.

The aim of the gallery is to bring items from the collection together in displays that demonstrate the diversity of work produced by Australian potters over the last fifty years, and some of the trends and cross-influences over time.

All fellow collectors, potters, students, historians and art and craft lovers are welcome, or anyone looking for functional or decorative items not quite in the usual style.

This season at the gallery their exhibition, entitled "Pale and Interesting" continues to explore glazes and decorative techniques with an emphasis on understated chromatic content.
