Bungendore Village - a day trip from Canberra

Bungendore is a small village, located between Canberra and Bateman's Bay. The drive from Canberra takes less than an hour, then you can spend as long as you want, enjoying all that the village has to offer.

We head first to our favourite - Bungendore Woodworks Gallery. This long established business has drawn its artworks from the most amazing designers and makers. Sculptures, fine furniture and other wooden objects just ask to be touched and admired. They are priced from a few dollars for small items, through to many thousands for the finest hand crafted furniture pieces.

The cafe attached to the gallery is a lovely place to pause and refresh, before venturing into the upstairs art gallery. Each visit here has shown us local artworks of exceptional standard ... and ensures that we are lured back next time we are in the area.

Bungendore Village has numerous cafes, art shops, plant nursery, antiques, wine tasting, and accommodation of all standards.
