The Best Australia has to Offer
Australia’s environment is extremely diverse, ranging from beautiful beaches to rainforests, from desert to snowy peaks, from our unique outback to densely populated urban centres, but when seen from the sky, the surface of our beautiful continent looks like the land has been burnt by the sun. Australia happens to have a perfect environment, hot and dry, which creates a particular form of chemical weathering called oxidation to give the ground its reddish hue.
Red Earth Market is the home of beautiful gifts, lovingly crafted iand featuring the work of local artists who are passionate about our land, its environment and unique history.
Whether you’re buying for friends, family or treating yourself to something special, creating a special memory of a trip “down under” or supporting the work of First Nations artists, you will find something unique and special in our store.
