Bringing the Community Together

Once the hub of the local dairying industry, this beautifully restored industrial building will once again bring the community together as a multipurpose venue.

Boasting original features of exposed steel beams and a gabled roof with trusses, combining its history with fresh, modern and luxurious touches. The Co-Op is a much-needed versatile venue which can be transformed into a stunning wedding venue, live music haven, a beautiful backdrop for filming and photo shoots and a space to gather for business and pleasure.

EST. 1888

In the 1870s, a butter wagon was sent from Kiama to Foxground, through Gerringong to then be transported to Sydney by steamer. As production increased, a central depot was needed in the region.

The original Gerringong Co-Operative factory first commenced its operation on 3 September 1888. In 2004, the co-operative was renamed to Dairy Farmers Limited (DFL) which had 1,423 farms producing 1.2 billion litres of milk. Gerringong Co-operative Dairy Society became the oldest continually operating dairy co-operative in Australia until it finished in 2007.

Craft Music Presents THE WHITLAMS BLACK STUMP DUO, Kookaburra 2024 Album Launch Tour

Tim Freedman and Ollie Thorpe’s acclaimed piano and pedal steel duo is the perfect vehicle to strip back Whitlams repertoire and deliver classics like “No Aphrodisiac” and “Blow Up the Pokies” with poignant atmospherics.

This intimate show will also serve to present new material, as the pair play songs from the debut album of Freedman’s new Americana group – The Whitlams Black Stump. Check out the 13 track long player, “Kookaburra” now.

The Whitlams Black Stump’s recent singles, “The Day John Sattler Broke His Jaw” and “No Aphrodisiac (Black Stump)”, which Countrytown called “a three-minute banjo-fied instant classic”, have been staples on Australian Country radio over the past year. The album, two years in the making, was produced by multiple Golden Guitar winner Matt Fell.
