    Ash Tree Studio is a new exhibition space in Taradale.

    Don’t know Taradale? .... it’s Castlemaine Fringe.

    Most significantly for Melbourne based clients, it is at the southernmost end of the Mount Alexander Shire and therefore only 1hour 20minutes from Melbourne. Access is via Calder Freeway and Old Calder Highway.

    The studio is nestled on a three-quarter acre block and is surrounded by shade trees and lawn. It is opposite a very leafy park with mineral springs reserve, children’s playground and public toilets.

    The front of the block is shared with a pizza and wine bar featuring great local wines and outside beer garden.

    The catering possibilities for a launch or exhibition opening are at your fingertips.

    We have connections with other local catering specialists such as full vegetarian/vegan etc.

    The studio is a repurposed garage/workshop and is thus a light construction – most suitable for static displays.

    There is approximately 50 metres of linear hanging space with hanging rail, 90 square metres of floor space, fixed LED lighting, kitchenette.

    Outside, there is 90 square metres of granitic sand forecourt as well as the extensive lawn area.

    Toilet facilities via front shop during opening hours – other times by arrangement. Public toilets opposite. Wheelchair accessible.

    20 minutes from Castlemaine.

    30 minutes from Daylesford.
