About Sassafras

Sassafras and Billie and Grace have combined to create our nostalgic little children’s store in the main street of historic Dungog.

We have sourced quality, traditional and sustainably made toys from all around the world with a focus on Australian made where possible and we would really love to share them with you. As a mum interested in learning the importance of natural open-ended play, the freedom and happiness it brings both my daughter and I has been a wonderful journey.

I am so grateful to be supported on this small business journey by amazing staff who are also dear friends. Sharon who originally founded Sassafras Dungog and Kirrily both bring so much to this little business and help it continue to grow.

Billie & Grace

Billie & Grace is a beautiful environmentally conscious brand. Andrea sources Australian made organic fabrics to create her unique children’s clothing which is all made locally. Andrea is originally from Gunnedah and her mother was taught to sew by her Grandmother Grace and Great Aunty Billie.

The Experience

Each purchase in store or online is lovingly gift wrapped and we hope you enjoy the experience of ‘Sassafras’.

We are located at 137 Dowling Street in Dungog. Next door to the post office in a lovely heritage building built in 1909.

Dungog borders on the Barrington Tops National Park and Chichester Dam just an hour north west of Newcastle with many scenic walks, rivers, waterfalls, cafes, shops and mountain bike trails to explore. A little place with lots to do either for a day or an entire week.

Thanks for popping by our website and we hope to meet you in store one day too.

Much Love Andrea x
