Still the only venue in Fyshwick, Canberra for both Antiques and Art, now 4 years old and going from strength to strength, Collectorium on Newcastle, run by Ruth & Robert, is a gallery which buys and sells a diverse range of genuine Antiques, Collectables, Decorative and Fine Art.
Our Fyshwick antique and art emporium is located in Newcastle Street and is only a 5–10 minute drive from the major attractions located around Lake Burley Griffin. Previously the ugly duckling at the east end of the lake, Fyshwick is now coming of age and showing itself to be a much more exotic bird.
