The PaintBox

The PAINTBOX is a discount art supplies shop with a difference! Dated 1839 The PaintBox is one of the oldest continuously operating shop premises in Australia. The heritage listed shop with its old fashioned display offers easy viewing of tubes of paint, brushes and myriad other art supplies. The cabinetry & shop fittings are a wonderful mix of display cabinets from a sweet shop on the Channel Islands; cabinets from an apothecary in France and drawers from The Maritime Museum of Tasmania.

To make it all work together, imagination and craftsmanship have joined hands. We love the result, so do our customers! Our first-time visitors are always mesmerised with the way the art supplies are displayed. Moreover, because the stock is so easily perused, artists keep coming back. Come and have a look.

The Drawing Room

The DRAWING ROOM is a heritage listed, light-filled Art Gallery where artists in residence can be found and where exhibitions and artists’ works are displayed.

Alongside the Drawing Room is The Little Bar, a heritage listed cafe and wine bar, operated in collaboration with The French Wine Centre. Next to The Little Bar are professional art studios where art classes and events are held. The PaintBox is the only fully Licensed Art Shop that we know of, serving traditional, progressive and natural French and Australian Wines and Beers, very good coffee and small plates. The Little Bar and Studios open out onto a gazebo and the original shop garden where events, catering, and functions are held.
