Australia’s inspiring, diverse and
independent designers, artists
and creators come together for
you at The Design Exchange


Australia is bursting at the seams with amazing independent designers, artists and creators, and The Design Exchange is passionate about bringing this to you over two inspiring days each Winter and leading up to Christmas in Ballarat… and now over Summer in Torquay! We celebrate small business, handmade, ethical trading and creativeness in an atmosphere that is inclusive and inviting.

The team are super excited to be curating this event and looking forward to sharing with you new innovative ideas over the coming months. Imagine creative designers and makers, artisan foods, talented musicians and a cosy atmosphere in one of Ballarat’s beautiful heritage buildings, the Mining Exchange.
