Hidden Treasure at TROVE

Trove is little off the beaten track at Gold Creek and you have to search to find it, but it’s worth the effort. By Aine Dowling

Trove, Gold Creek Nicholls

Hidden away from the myriad of shops and cafés that surround The Abbey, Trove is across the road and in the direction of the Dinosaur Museum and sits among a small, but select, couple of cafés, a small craft shop, and a photographic studio.

A collective of artists, creators, inventors, and makers, Trove deserves more patronage than it actually gets. Here’s a little look at what Trove has to offer.
