two eight two eight
Located in Gulargambone, two eight two eight is a vibrant, unique, exciting and innovative community project in central western New South Wales. Community volunteers created two eight two eight in an attempt to reinvigorate their town's economy. They began by refurbishing a dilapidated building in the main street to develop a tourist information centre, and over the next few years the project grew into something much more. The project is still run almost entirely by volunteers and has won numerous awards.
Named after the town's postcode, the complex now boasts a cafe; landscaped courtyard; gallery and craft shop selling local art, craft and produce; a function centre; quality catering service including 'Dinners Under the Stars'; monthly movie nights; library and storytelling; second hand bookshop and an accredited visitor information centre.
