For as long as we have been open we have decorated our walls with the art of our local patrons and friends.

It has been so great to have the wall space inside the cafe adorned with these works and create discussion and wonder for our customers.

Please contact us if you would like to exhibit or hold an event here at Star Anise and we will get back to you as soon as possible.

Star Anise is as child friendly as you could wish for. We offer a range of healthy snacks, juices and meals as well as story books, toys and drawing equipment.

We also encourage Mums and Dads to bring the children along to storytelling on a Saturday morning when they will be treated to an experience like no other!

Our storytellers create a magical atmosphere that both kids and parents find most enjoyable.

Come along and sample the atmosphere!

Pssst! It's also helpful if we are all a little bit still & quiet during the story. Thank you!

Saturday mornings from 11.00am in the Kindy! (Donations)
