Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

High quality and wide selection of artisan's work. The layout enabled one to browse and choose without any pressure. The staff member was very helpful, friendly and knowledgeable.

One of the more interesting shops in the flashy, white D’Albora Marina, the Artisan Collective showcases works by local artists. Inside, you’ll find a variety of paintings, printmaking, sculpture, photography and ceramics, many with coastal themes. As you’d expect many of the artists draw on their immediate environment to produce their work.
Some of the pieces were of very high quality and everything was well displayed in a bright, open area. I was very drawn to the blue and white ceramic pottery and was intrigued by some striking fish prints that used the Japanese Gyotaku technique.
From time to time, they hold special exhibitions. Currently local artist, Penny Amberg is showing her dramatic, stormy paintings and her delicate copper woven sculptures.
There’s also a much smaller range of souvenir/gift items such as cards, jewellery, hair accessories and bags.
Volunteers manning the gallery were very helpful and were able to talk about the artworks, without being at all pushy.
Overall, this was a very nice place to browse out of the sun for a while and there’s a lot here to tempt.

Down near the waterfront this is a must see collection of artworks by local artists which changes regularly. Photography, painting, pottery, cloth products and more with something to appeal to everyone. A very helpful and friendly woman explained how it all works. The shop itself is very bright, clean and modern with things attractively displayed. We even got free ice-cream vouchers to use at the nearby ice-cream shop as a result of our purchases.

Found this amazing place of spectacular local artists. Such spectacular art, so much diversity, themes and different mediums used. One artist I just had to purchase was Kimberly Swan , Kimberley has such talent , her illustrative works are amazing , and her mixed media moved me . I can highly recommend popping into this outstanding Art collection . You won't be disappointed. For the art enthusiast , or for anyone who wants to appreciate art at it's best.

A great little independent collective showcasing the local talents of artists, creatives and makers. Well worth a visit whilst soaking up the waterside at Nelson Bay. Prices are reasonable for original pieces large and small. I’ve picked up really unique hand-made gifts for friends and family without breaking the bank. Different. New. Good.
