As part of the Cooroy Fusion Festival we visited the Butter Factory and viewed the Boday Painting Art Work which was just amazing. Butter Factory is another great asset to Cooroy!

A functional dairy factory has been transformed into a striking workable art gallery. We enjoyed the diverse exhibits and even were enticed to buy an eyecatching large glass wall hanging. Very unusual.I also bought Christmas gifts from the high quality gallery shop.
