Give Your Mum The Gift Of Craft

Spoil your mum this Mother’s Day with a gift from the Sarina Arts and Crafts Centre.

Leading up to Mother’s Day on Sunday, May 14, the centre is featuring its locally made crafts, giving you a chance to say ‘love you, Mum’ to the most important person in your life.

All our crafts are hand-made locally to a high standard by our highly experienced crafters, who put many hours of painstaking work into their creations.

“We are very proud of all our crafters,” centre manager Jenny Costello said.

“They all have many years of experience behind them in creating their crafts, which is apparent from the standard of their items, and our prices are quite cheap.”

The centre is a non-profit group run entirely by volunteers in heritage buildings at the Sarina Field of Dreams Parkland, which is at the southern entrance to the town.

The parkland also houses the Sarina Museum, the Sarina Art Gallery and the Sarina Sugar Shed, along with the Mackay Tourism Information Centre, which is housed in the town’s railway station.

The centre is open Monday-Saturday 9am to 1pm.
