Marrickville, Addison Road Community Centre

This is a hot spot for creatives and environmentally-conscious DIY shoppers. The centre also has an art gallery and small theatre, but some of it's biggest drawcards are the three below...

MARRICKVILLE ORGANIC MARKET

THE BOWER

Collecting and reselling salvaged building, plumbing and gardening supplies or preloved, worn and authentic goods.


REVERSE GARBAGE

This is a not-for-profit co-operative that sells industrial discards, off-cuts and over-runs to the public for creative and practical uses, reducing the amount of waste going to landfill. They also have a small gallery/shop outside with things made from recycled stuff, including these wonderful sculptures made from discarded car mufflers, exhaust pipes and window wipers.
