On their website it says they're open in March. We arrived in March, and they were closed. Disappointed.

A wide selection of sandalwood products to choose from, including toiletries and wood decorations. A must for a quick stop before going home (or further into kimberleys). Only a short drive out of town, well sign posted.

The breakfasts and lunches here are amazing! The women who run the cafe seem very passionate about the food and most obliging when it comes to adapting food to suit certain dietary requirements. The meals are generous, healthy and delicious. You simply cannot go here without getting a mango smoothie. They are the best!

I only visited the shop which was amazing .There were detailed plaques and information throughout the shop explaining the processes used to obtain the sandalwood and extracts.Well worth visiting for the products on offer and the insight into how the Sandalwood plantations work.

Bot really a factory folks. The factory is at Albany. An 8 minute video explains the project. The video is an investment sales pitch. A fair amount of hype. Sandalwood isn't rare in the dry tropics, in fact some places you need to take care not to pick it up for firewood. It makes horrible firewood.

We took a drive out to the Sandalwood Factory and cafe to have a look. There is a video running to tell how TFS are doing things but it's a typical corporate video, not much except what good corporate citizens they are. The products in the showroom are good, my partner was very. Interested and bought some. I bought some... More

Took time to drive out of town and explore the Ord River regions and came across this facility not far from Kununurra, Take time to watch the video in the shop and learn all about this exciting location and the products produced from the Sandalwood trees. The shop sells many of the produced items and the cafe is clean and... More
