The Bower has four locations in the Sydney metropolitan area, all doing different things within the reuse and repair world.
The Bower Marrickville
Home to our office HQ and flagship store, the Marrickville shopfront accepts donations from the public during opening hours.
Update 14 April 2021: In response to a scheduled power outage on Wednesday, April 14 we have decided to close our Marrickville store and head office for the day.
Apologies for any inconvenience this may cause. Bower Woodworks and Banga Community Hub will operate as usual. We will return with vim and vigour on Thursday April 15!
Update, April 2021: We are unable to accept small electrical items until further notice. We apologise for any inconvenience this may cause and recommend you use our Reuse Database to look for suitable alternatives during this time. We are monitoring this situation; please check back for updates.

(Addison Road Community Centre)
Mon – Sat: 10am – 5pm, Sun: 10am – 4pm

PLEASE NOTE: We require all donation collection requests and enquiries to be sent to us through our WEB BOOKING TOOL.
The Bower Marrickville is located 1.7km from Marrickville train station. Bus 428 (from City or Canterbury) stops on Addison Road directly out the front of the Addison Road Community Centre. There is plenty of free parking within the Addison Road Community Centre.
The Bower Parramatta
Our Parramatta premise is an important base from which we serve the communities of Western Sydney. These premises act as both a store exclusively for our House to Home customers and a woodworks space. We hold regular workshops in Parramatta, including school holiday workshops for children. The Bower Parramatta is also home to the Parramatta Women’s Shed.
Shop 1, 10 Hunter Street, Parramatta
The Bower Parramatta is located 750m from Parramatta train station. The Route 900 / free shuttle bus stops nearby at corner of Macquarie & O’Connell Street. There is paid parking directly above The Bower in the Hunter Street (Justice Precinct) car park.
Bower Woodworks is located at the rear of 107 in Redfern.
Here we operate regular carpentry workshops (including the Marrickville Men’s Shed) and our Bower Bespoke service. Our staff create signature Bower items from recycled materials that we sell in our shopfront. They also work on individual projects to your specifications. Send your enquiries and photos to email@example.com.
107 Redfern St, Redfern NSW 2016
Access via rear lane off Turner St. Please call ahead to arrange time to speak with our workshop staff.
Banga Community Hub
***Please note: Banga Community Shed will be closed on Thursday, April 8. It will reopen for business on Friday, April 9.***
The Banga Community Shed is a hub for skill sharing and electronic repairs. You can bring your items for repair and donation here.
As Banga is a small space and sometimes inundated with repair items, we recommend calling ahead to confirm that we can accept your item.
