Explore our heritage-listed building and see more than 2,000 pieces of pottery from 130 Australian pottery companies established between 1788 and 1920.

Learn more about the Australian pottery heritage and the struggle, courage and determination of many early potters who, often under difficult circumstances, produced basic and decorative domestic pottery, frequently with spectacular results.

The collection includes a large variety of wares, simple preserving jars, jugs, colourful cheese covers, beautiful bread plates, elegantly decorated water filters, etc., and rare pieces made by the convict potter Johnathan Leak whose few surviving pieces are the earliest marked pottery produced in Australia.

Groups: We welcome group bookings in advance and can open on Wednesdays with notice. We offer morning or afternoon tea, with an introductory talk and guided tour for $15 per person.

Please email or phone ahead for more information, group bookings or if you’re travelling some distance to visit.
