Brockman Precinct

The Brockman Precinct is located 4km south of the Bindoon town site on Great Northern Highway.  The precinct is not only the location of the magnificent Old Road Board building, it is home to three fantastically proactive local community-led organisations - The Bindoon Heritage Museum, The Bindoon Arts and Crafts Group and the Bindoon Men's Shed.  

Community members and visitors, young and old are welcome to pop in to the Precinct during any of the open times OR, if you can't make it down for a visit you can keep up-to-date with events, activities and personalities online or through Facebook at:

Arts and Craft

Arts and Craft members utilise the old Shire Clerk's home, including running a delightful shop for their handcrafted wares.  They meet to share stories and laughter while quilting, knitting, crocheting, sewing, spinning, mosaic works and pottery. It's not unusual to see other like minded groups visiting from far and wide.  

Open Wed , Sat and Sun 10am to 3pm.  Tel: 9576 0249

Bindoon Men's Shed

After establishing the group in October 2012, the Shed construction was completed in early 2015.  The Shed boasts a well-equipped workshop where members tinker away building furniture for sale at local events.  The "Dribble and Spit" corner is also popular for card games and socialising, along with a snooker table and dart board.  

The Shed is open Tuesdays and Wednesdays from 10am with a "Muster" held on the third (3rd) Tuesday of each month.
