Welcome to our shop! We are open 10-4, Monday to Friday. We also have a market stall at the Broome Courthouse Markets every Saturday, and on most Sundays until late September. However, we can't carry our whole stock range to the markets, just the essentials. If you are in Broome and can't make it to our shop during the week, we can bring your order to the markets if you phone before Friday afternoon (08 91937036).
If you can't get to Broome just yet, have a look through this website - there's lots of information and pictures about us and our products. Its just a shame we can't (yet) let you smell the great aromas!

There is a host of other ideas, classics and newbies, here. And dont forget we have some great gifts for kids.
What's new at Hidden Valley?
There have been lots of newbies this year. Consistent rains brought a new solution to the insect problem - a heavy duty but still natural and effective Pestoff spray concentrate with or without a 500ml trigger spray bottle (or buy your own). Our test bunnies think it's marvellous, and their test conditions have been terrible, so we are convinced of its effectiveness.
Check out our new Aromas & Colours of Broome soy candle box or jar, celebrating Broome's iconic colours and our own interpretation of their matching aromas.

What's New in Broome?
It was a Bran Nu Dae in Broome - the gradual lifting of the heavy weight of anxiety as locals breathed again after Woodside's announcement - the LNG processing plant WILL NOT BE LOCATED AT JAMES PRICE POINT!
Naturally some folks are disappointed, some thought it would be a life saver or investor's dream, a few have lost jobs, some businesses have shut down, and many houses, boats and other toys are for sale. But now the process of healing wounds and divisions can begin. Bright new visions of a sustainable economic future are slowly arising. The dollar is going down a little, and this will bring tourism back. Indigenous tourism ventures up the Dampier Peninsular are slowly building. The Taste of Broome nights at Goolarri have been magnificent celebrations of Broome history, culture, music and food.
Unfortunately we can't relax, as pressures build elsewhere - eg. fracking pressures for the huge reserves of shale gas throughout the Canning Basin & Fitzroy River areas. And numerous other mining exploration leases dotting the Kimberley. The Premier still wants a port to ship these and other mineral exports out of the Kimberley. Australia has swung conservative and the new Australian federal government has some ominous plans for the North.
For more current information about the Kimberley, see the links here....
Hidden Valley Handcrafts would like to take this opportunity to thank our many supporters who helped publicize the gas issue throughout Australia, and who sent their well wishes, signed petitions, shared internet information, and much more. Thank you, and may the Kimberley remain Wild and Free, an amazing unique asset for all Australians.
