Heritage & Arts in Yass Valley

The Yass Valley is blessed with rich history and a thriving local art scene. From unique gallery cafes to beautiful self-guided walks through our historical villages, you will be sure to find something that suits you! 

 

Tootsie Gallery Cafe

Begin your Heritage and Arts escape in the Yass Valley with a visit to Tootsie Gallery Cafe. Tootsie’s building was originally the first service station between Sydney and Melbourne, known as the Hume Service Station. The authentic restoration of this beautiful 1937 art deco building, has been a labour of love for the new owners.

Tootsie Gallery Cafe provides a friendly and funky atmosphere with awesome coffee and cakes. The studio has been created to suit handcrafted works of art created by artists and artisans. It provides unique exhibition spaces, and a sculpture garden for artists and art lovers of many mediums to present their work and their passion to the public. The restored workshop space is also available for hire.
