The current display at the Wollongong Art Gallery is Frugal Forest. A forest created from repurposed items (the palm tree made from socks is pretty amazing). Kids with parents or teachers will find the display especially entertaining.

Positioned in a charming arts precinct. I parked in crown street and walked through the laneway which was decorated with art exhibitions. The gallery is large and well curated and hung. Very pleasant and surprising quality well worth a visit. Thoroughly enjoyable.
